This hybrid between R. lindleyi and R. nuttallii was created and named in Australia.  It is a unique cultivar as it has larger flowers, with more bell-shaped blossoms to the truss...as many as 10 and sometimes 14!  The flowers are white with a yellow throat and HUGE!  Each blossom can measure 6" long and 6" in diameter.  I remember seeing a photo of several plant hunters standing around drinking wine out of these flowers.  The foliage is large and heavily textured, adding to the tropical aire.  This plant, however, is tender and will not survive temperatures below +20 F.  I do know several people who grow this plant in a large container and move it into a greenhouse for the winter.
