I had just given this name by the way it looked.

Coincidentally, when I searched for the details of this flower I came across the following:

King’s Mantle (Thunbergia erecta)

Family: Acanthaceae (ah-kanth-AY-see-ay)
Genus: Thunbergia (thun-BER-jee-uh)
Species: erecta (ee-RECK-tuh)

    Feels like I’m slipping over that edge, like a waterfall or a sinkhole or something. Dizzying!
