S. brasiliensis and S. aggregata are quite different in appearance. The former has large bat-pollinated greenish flowers (often with red markings), while the latter has narrow tubular red flowers. Both can grow quite tall, a feature passed on to this hybrid as is apparent from the photo of the whole plant seen here.
