Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.

Aeschynanthus pulchra G.Don var. majus

See Aeschynanthus pulchra G.Don for a description of the type.  Probably a variety of Aeschynanthus pulchra with larger flowers.  I have found no specific reference to this variety.
