 Columnea 'Sunfire' - I bought this one at the Tennessee Gesneriad Society show September 2011.  It
started blooming and hasn't stopped.  It has fuzzy leaves and grows semi-hanging, it has bright yellow and
orange flowers with an orange bract.  I have really enjoyed this plant for the last few months, it has bloomed
non-stop.  I have crossed this to 'Aladinn's Lamp',
schediana and 'Light Prince', berries are forming, so
hopefully at least a couple took.
