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.

Billbergia grandiflora [Macarthur]

I have found no reference to a plant of this name. It is probably an unpublished nursery name for a Billbergia or a related species.
