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 which flowers late). Easily grown in part shade in a good fertile moisture-retentive soil with adequate drainage.
