Does anyone know the name of this flower? I only remember that the name had "lips" in it, but I don't remember anything else:

It's hard to tell with no leaves to look at, but might it be a penstemon?

@littlek,
I thought of that but the leaves look a little furry...
I've seen a lot of different penstemons, but by no means all. Worth looking up in case it is.

Thanks all. I got a reply somewhere saying it could be a "Lipstick plant", but I'm not 100% sure. It does seem to have the hairy trait, though.

@Pikangie,
Tulip also has Lip in its name, but this is entirely different from tulip.

@kettyjones,
The same applies to cowslip.

@Lordyaswas,
It's most probably an hemerocallis but could also be a flower of the bignonias family.

At least it's not a hot lips flower:

@timur,
Older thread but, I know what your flower is. It's Columnea. Possibly Columnea hirta. (;
