R. magniflorum (Fortunea)A new to cultivation introduction of what could one of the most interesting and rarest Fortunea. Judging from the type description, from 1988, this could be one of the largest flowered Rhododendron with flowers 10cm long in truss of 12-14 flowers, all floral parts covered in glandular hairs, which probably make it allied to R. glanduliferum, which are know from about 400km away. There seem to be very little suitable habitat left for this species and until the area are better know, please consider this species rare and make the most of the seed, as it could well become threatened it's natural habitat by cutting or fire. Will probably be a late flowering plant, hopefully with good hardiness and heat tolerance. Jens Nielsen
