The flower on this plant is similar to that of A. tricolor, which usually has larger bowl-shaped calyces, in a variety of colors, but the trailing habit with stems up to a meter long is different than usually seen on plants labeled as that species. They maybe variants of the same species. A closeup of the flower better illustrates the unusual and attractive form.
