Mary Sue,

Material of 'R engleri' in cultivation varies - it is not clear to me what
the true situation is in terms of correlation with the original description
which I have not seen.  What is generally understood to be the plant is a
mauve flowered taxon, as illustrated on the Audrey Cain website at   Lauws material with richer coloured
flowers may represent variation within the species. The plant is, I believe,
of NW African origin.

Regarding R gigantea, it is extremely easy to grow in the UK under glass. I
have not tried it out of doors and, frankly, would not try to due to its
invasive potential.
