Would any folks who are flowering this regularly and well please let me 
know if you are getting more than one flower per peduncle, in rapid 
succession? I will share my experience: out of perhaps 20 peduncles, 6 
have borne two flowers. This shows no signs of stopping; the next two 
are promising to be doubles. I'd like to hear from you if you have had 
lots of peduncles but always single flowers, sometimes successive 
flowers, whatever. 

Many thanks,
Lisa

This has been my experience too. I have always been suspicious of 
this species because the clone I have - and the others I've seen - 
looks exactly like the yellow forms of Masd. Oriole (veitchiana x 
reichenbachiana). They match in growth habit, culture and 
flowers. Oriole also sometimes puts on a second flower.

Lisa-

This "species" does have the ability to bloom with more than one flower per peduncle. I firmly believe that M.niesseniae is actually Masd.Oriole (vietch.x.reichenbachiana) they have exactly the same flower, growth habit and bloom simultaneously in my collection and are indestinquishable when placed side by side. My plants of M.niesseniae came from Andrea Niessen and Lynn so I am pretty confident that I have "the real thing". I know of no other species in the coccinea section (which it supposedly belongs to) that has that ability.
The only way we will know for absolute is if we can have some DNA work done on the plant. It appears to me that there are several possible hybrids (natural or otherwise) that have been recently described as species - very similar to the problems that have occurred in the genus Dracula over the years.
