    Information for the Mussaenda genus. http://archive.naplesnews.com/lifestyle/home/butterflies-and-hummingbirds-drawn-to-mussaenda-34b89530-5584-2e1e-e053-0100007fe728-382571091.html

    I wish I could a closeup of the plant & its side view. The “green flower” maybe enlarged floral sepals(?) I’m guessing this might be something in the Mussaenda genus. And this perhaps from the species M. philippica or its hybrid “‘Aurorae’ the white Mussaenda/Bankok Rose (?). Check it out and see if you have a match. Click on image to enlarge. Best wishes! https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:White_Mussaenda_(Mussaenda_philippica_%27Aurorae%27)_1.jpg
