Description: From my seed collected north of Baoxing, China in 2000. A rare species close to H. aspera, with the name misused for a lilac-flowered species. Flowering earlier than the rest of this group in June-July, with white fertile flowers surrounded by serrated sterile white florets. The broadly heart-shaped coarsely serrated leaves are densely hairy below, brown thick on main veins. Born on long (20cm) petioles (hence confused with H. robusta). Best in part shade in a good fertile moisture-retentive soil with adequate drainage.
