    Although the flower looks similar to a fuchsia - I don't believe it is a fuchsia because there isn't an ovary above the flower tube, the flower tube opening is different and the leaves don't look like fuchsia leaves.

    It might be Passiflora tripartita....

    Pardon my error.

    Was misled by:
    1. my incorrect fuchsia ID;
    2. my preconception of what a passionflower looks like, and;
    3. confusion from looking up 'Fuchsia cuatrecasasii' and finding what appeared to be substantiation for the existence of this as a sp.
    Example:
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/dave_green/5346244469/
    (One wonders if Mr. Green has acquired that plant by legal means!)

    And yes, have also seen that 'Passiflora cuatrecasasii' exists as well.

    Thanks, Colombia and woates---as the saying goes, I've been schooled!

    Definately Passiflora, and yes, could be tripartita... or antioquiensis, tarminiana, etc. Something within the cool-growing sect. Tacsonia. Probably one of the banana passionfruit.

    Definitely a Taxo of some sort. I'd be looking at tripartata, mixta, and antioquiensis for that one, but they're very hard to tell from one another when they're pink like that.

    Thanks but it is not antioquiensis I have photos of that and the others mentioned don't look more of a match then the cuatrecasasii link above.

    I do not know the flower parts names, but on my photo the tube of the flower is the same color as the flower and the portion above that is not green like it is for tripartita where the tube of the flower is also green.

    Well I got the name of the plant part now.
    For tripartita:The base of the flower has pale green bracts enclosing a swollen nectary chamber. The floral tube (hypanthium) is 6-8 × 0. 7-1 cm and pale green.
    Which does not match the colors I have in my photo

    I had another look at your original pictures and you are right the floral tube is the same colour as the flower petals.

    I also noticed that your flower is compound (double), while the tripartita appears to have a single flower.

    The search continues....

    Kaamos, I LOVE YOU! No seriously. I would love to obtain some of these species, if you have access and are willing. I would really love a Passiflora umbilicata, I know that is out of your area, but if anyone else knows..... PLEASE,
    And thank you for the REAL scoop!
