Andinia schizopogon

This strange and unusual species comes from Ecuador and Peru.  It has a rambling habit, narrow leaves and is best grown on a mount.  It produces its flowers successively on short spikes and seems to be always in bloom. The flowers are 5 cm long and the plant 8 cm tall.  It was formerly classified as a Pleurothallis but has been reclassified as part of the breaking up of that huge genus.
