I think Thunbergia coccinea and T. mysorensis are two different species. Please check these

This is Thunbergia mysorensis

Yes! Agree with …,
T. mysorensis and T. coccinea are different.
The later is very common in NE India. Will post the images soon.

Thunbergia mysorensis (Wight) T. Anderson … (family: Acanthaceae, Thunbergiaceae)

Thanks never seen it in nature
only in hot houses// arboretums in the west and in botanical gardens in the east…
this is a rare site for me
nice to see it in its home..

Agree with … Never thought this to be wild. Of course the name suggests so though.

very nice. grows in hot houses/glass houses in england and usa canada etc. no bees these, so i was happy to see your picture of the bee working hard to get he nectar.
So my question. i have never seen fruits  ever, even they flowered extensively thru out the growing season. have you seen them here with pollinator population? do you have pictures?

…, I have not seen the fruits yet. Will certainly share if I come across. By the way does it produce fruits at all…??? Not sure yet.
