Description: A species that I have found several times in the Sapa area of northern Vietnam, hence I was surprised that it bore the name of Bavi, a much lower elevation area, near Hanoi. In the Sapa area it forms strong clumps of erect stems to 50 cm tall, covered in bright gingery fleshy hairs, from a creeping rhizome. The foliage is green, to about 20 cm across with variable lobbing, 5-7 in number enhanced with gingery hairs on both surfaces. Flowering in April in the wild, the buds and stems heavily covered in ginger hair, flowers white to pale pink. Should prove relatively hardy, but best approached with caution. Best in full to part shade in a humus enriched drained soil.
