This plant has orange blossoms that have yet to fully open and also has a hard, woody stem. I purchased this at a local indoor garden in Beaumont, Tx. Thank you for your time!

Pretty! I'm not sure but it reminds me of Orange Trumpet Creeper (Pyrostegia venusta)

My first impression from the color of the bloom and the shape of the leaf is that it is a milkweed. "Asclepias tuberosa Orange Butterfly Weed". I have never seen one in a pot but we plant the seed here to support the Monarch butterfly. Maybe someone else will weigh in on this.

I believe mellie is right on.

The buds don't look match and the leaves look too wide for Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa) fly-Weed-Asclepias-tuberosa/:

@kalllimnex, welcome to NGA. Join us at the Texas forum.

When the blooms open, take a photo of them and repost.
