Aeschynanthus ‘Thai Pink’ is a vigorous, large growing species with vines often reaching 6-7 feet 9 (~2m) in length in 12-18 months after being started from cuttings.  The flowers are large (2 inches/5cm) and are pink in color, quite unusual for the genus.  The fused calyx may either match the color of the corolla, or be a somewhat translucent green with pink.  Another view of the flowers can be seen here and here.  A view of the full plant can be seen here.
