Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Description: A Chinese species which I collected with Dan Hinkley high on Longzhoushan southern Sichuan in 2000, at well over 3000m, on a steep rock strewn bank in full sun. Where several plants formed a colony of sprawling stems 2m across with opposite pairs of prettily mottled palmate leaves on reddish stems that occasionally rooted at their nodes. Bearing a generous quantity of axillary pairs of erect white flowers 3cm across, conspicuously purple veined with contrasting black stamen July-November. Easily grown in full sun to part-shade in a well drained soil that has some moisture retention.
