Redvein Abutilon, the Chinese Lantern Flower
These were growing seemingly wild around our lodge, San Isidro, in Ecuador. Supposedly they do not occur naturally there being from Brazil and Argentina, but they weren't growing in any kind of tended beds and we even saw some along the forest trails. Still, very cool little flowers that indeed look just like tiny Chinese Lanterns.
