I have this plant at home it is the Clock vine (Thunbergia mysorensis). Mine has not flowered as yet as it suffers a lot from neglect in the position where it is placed in with the orchids.
If you can keep your eyes off the ever increasing amount of orchids and bromeliads that are rapidly taking over the Princess of Wales Conservatory in preparation for Kew's annual Tropical Extravaganza festival, you may notice a stunning yellow and red flower hanging down near the aquatic display. Every flower cup is filled with nectar. It truly rivals the orchids. and cannot remember its name. Mine has not flowered as yet as it keeps being neglected and suffers a lot.
