Description: A distinct rhizomatous perennial that I collected the seed of in northwestern Yunnan in 2000 at 3660m. Where this species was locally common growing in a shrubbery sheltering underneath the branches. Arising from small slightly knobbly rhizomes only 2.5cm across, with fairly upright bristly stems to 80cm tall with few (to 8) large elliptic leaves on very short stem clasping petioles. With terminal hairy racemes sometimes branched from their base, with the distinct solitary long tubular (to 1cm) yellowish highly scented flowers borne May to June, followed by red berries from August to October. Easily grown in full to partial shade, in any type of fertile well drained soil with lots of added humus.
