Pot Size: 8.5cm
Description: From the tall experimental mountain forest of Hsitou at mid elevation, where we were fortunate to be given permission to collect this in 1996. A low growing evergreen perennial species with creeping elongated rhizomatous roots. With large leaves that are heart shaped greenish-yellow maculate on their upper surfaces, somewhat reminiscent of Cyclamen. The brown-purple cream-centred sizeable (for Asarum) flowers are born in abundance near to the ground. Best grown in a very sheltered damp and warm environment in full to partly shaded site, in a moisture retentive, but drained neutral to acid humus rich soil. Slugs do not pollinate the flowers, only eat them.
