Can someone help me identify this plant?

Bought a window box with an assortment of flowering plants including this beauty.  I just never saw this plant before.  It’s about 10” tall with an unusual stem crowned by an orange flower.  Can someone help me identify it?

    What an amazing plant, I guess it has enjoyed the warm temperatures. Not sure which is the most exciting the leaves or the flowers.

    The name's unusual too! 
    I might try saying that next time I drop anything on my foot.....

    @Woodgreen I think it will have a far better effect than any swear word. I will give it a go if I can remember it!
