Description: A species name that covers a variable group of varieties, sometimes regarded as separate specie. Forming low evergreen perennials with creeping elongated rhizomatous roots. Bearing 2-3 leaves per stem, which are heart shaped decoratively white to pale green marked on their upper surfaces, purple below on some, somewhat reminiscent of Cyclamen foliage. The brownish-purple flowers are three lobed borne near the ground with wrinkled centres. From one of our collections gathered from the dark damp forest of Taipingshan, a mountainous area in northern Taiwan in November 1993 at around 1885m. Best grown in a fully to partly shaded site, in a moisture retentive acidic to neutral soil which is drained.
