As its name suggests, this flower has a cylindrical trumpet shape and grows 20 cm in diameter.  It is whitish on the first day, but it turns yellowish the next day.  It has a dark purple line on the middle of its petals and a light purple doublet on the connate part of petals.  Goldencup whose flower resembles this flower is the color of Turmeric pigment (Curcumin) and has a central dark purple line, but does not have a doublet.
The vine climbing in the air expands an aerial root system which can be respiratory root.
This plant is famous for its pollination by hummingbirds.
