Pot Size: 1 litre (deep)
Description: From one of our collections gathered close to the Chinese border in the Vietnamese forest near Y Ty in 2006. Where this species grew as a lithophyte on a vertical rock face covered in moss, forming a prostrate rosette of ovate grey-green softly pubescent above pale villous below leaves, on densely brownish villous petioles only 5cm long. While the cymose 3-10 flowered rust-brown villous inflorescence was only 12cm long (double that in cultivation) bearing the long pointed tubular seed capsules almost 4cm long on 2.5cm long pedicells, resulting from the bright yellow waisted flowers, August-September. Untried for hardiness, but grow well in containers or a shady sheltered site.
