Mutant Orange Flower Plant

Anyone know what kind of plant this is?



I bought it at the grocery store a couple weeks ago. It only had 4 or 5 flowers then and now it's nothing but flowers - it barely has any green leaves left. Its cool, but its creeping me out a little. It can't continue on like this forever - its going to spontaneously combust soon!

Close-up of flowers:



Just yesterday I notices two of these odd trumpet shaped flowers hiding amongst the normal ones. Bizarre.
