It's all about choices.
Torill in Sweden and Michele Rodda in Italy have co-published H. danumensis which WAS H. campanulata. In their publication they make a case for the fact that H. campanulata has actually NOT been found and that which we were calling H. campanulata is now the new H. danumensis. Danum Valley is where Ted Green found it and he believes it is H. campanulata.... Still ongoing investigation....

No worries...this new names/re names bit will always go on!!!

In Heaven there is no beer, that is
Ted Green did find a plant he called Companulata just outside Danum Valley. Now the question is. Is his plant Danumensis or not?. We have to wait and see if the bumps/humps are on the back of the flower. We have several companulata like plants with some differences. I don't think he's disputing the new Hoya Danumensis name for Torrill's Hoya. I think the question we have is between Companulata and Cystiantha. I'm very new to researching any hoya, but it seems to me from what I've read and herb. sheets I've looked at and publications, eg. the Hoyan, that Cystiantha is quite a bit smaller than Companulata, not the other way around. So that's just one of the things I'm confused about.

Good point, Dorothy. With more and more interest in hoya and the younger generation collecting, more and more collections are being found. Soon there will be a good collection of these campanulate flowered ones....

Bloom On!!! Hurray!

Thank you for information, Carol. But I confuse between Hoya danumensis, cystiantha and wallichii. Can you describe ?.

I am not as aware of the details as Dorothy is. I know that currently H. cystiantha is the former H. wallichii and H. wallichii is not determined. H. campanulata is the former H. wallichii.

For those , like me, in the fog: the three hoyas mentioned have been in circulation for a while...and are similar. The largest was determined to be H. wallichii, the second largest H. campanulata and then at the bottom, H. cistiantha = all perChris Burton and David Liddle. Ted Green maintained that the largest was H. campanulata, and the second in size was H. wallichii...then cystiantha. Suddenly, David Liddle agreed with Ted Green...and the names were switched. Now, H. danumensis has been published. Please be aware that there are a number of these campanulate flowers in question....and just keep the tags in pencil. It shall all be revealed one day... Does it matter? They are all beautiful flowers!!!!
