Ladies, this plant is for you.
The centre oil palm tree (above) is where the Lipstick plant grows
I had a pleasant surprise upon seeing the Lipstick vine ( Aeschynanthus spp) that hugs the oil palm trunk at Zone B (see inset) producing flowers. For a couple of days I have been watching the moment when the flower will reveal its full blooming glory. The Lisptick vine is a native plant in Sarawak or Borneo Island for that matter where it naturally grows on trees close to rivers and streams. The flowers look like a red lipstick poking out of a deep red holder. The leaves are waxy and succulent . This plant does fine on a hanging basket.
