Hoya griffithii Was Named For William Griffith

Named for William Griffith, who first collected the plant. William Griffith bequeathed his collection and papers to the East India Company, which was sent to England, where they are stored in the library of the herbarium at Kew Gardens. No Botanist ever, collected and described so many species, like Griffith. His collection comprised some 12,000 species! I want to thank Mary Carroll for making this information readily available to me.
