Divemuster and Moggie have identified this flower as Asclepias curassavica, a species of milkweed. Common names: Bloodflower, Scarlet Milkweed. Thanks, Moggie, for the pointer.

How do you tell which is the Mr and which is Mrs? So cute and presume they are distant relatives of Mr. & Mrs. Potato-head?
