Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Description: Originating from a seed collection I made with Aaron Floden and Tom Mitchell from a high rugged forest edge in the Five Fingers area, near Sapa in northern Vietnam in 2011. From deeply delving branched taproots 2-3 cm thick, erect stems branch above encased in greenish inflated sheaths. The petioles 10-20 cm long carry filigree pale green foliage and congested wide umbels 8-10 cm across of white dark centred flowers in wide flat-topped umbels July-August. Expanding in fruit to 20cm across transforming to flat dark green contrasting seed backed by white papery bracts, by September-October. Best grown in good light to part shade in a free drained soil with some moisture retention.
