A collection by plantsman Nick Macer of Pan Global Plants of this choice species which has awaited introduction since Frank Kingdon Ward first discovered it over 70 years ago.  Striking deeply lobed palmate leaves held on long spotted stems with late season pink flowers.  Visually arresting clump, to be honest.  Overwintered in a Seattle garden with a wee bit of bark mulch during the heinous winter of 2021-22 which took out a variety of hitherto untouched plants.  Mulch crown to prevent frost from penetrating during winter.
