Description: Possibly the most floriferous selection of any species in cultivation. An evergreen perennial arising from thickened creeping scaly rhizomes, forming dense colonies of long petioles, bearing long glossy deep green, yellow to white spotted leaves to a meter tall, 10-15cm wide. In this form the pale yellow tubular-campanulate flowers with 7-8 reflexed lobes are produced in ridiculous quantities carpeting the ground in warm conditions October to January. The flowers are borne just above ground level, while the stigma of this species is easily identifiable looking like a blown out umbrella. From our first expedition to Taiwan in 1992 from a very well drained shady area near the village of Dungpu (Tungpu), at the base of Yushan, Taiwan's highest mountain, part of their Central Mountain Range.
