Description
 
A very distinct form of this species which was collected in Nepal by Tony Schilling and shared with us by David Mason of Hedgerows Nursery.  A good spreader rather than a clumper, the rounded ping-pong paddle leaves offer much as a small-scale groundcover.  White to tinged pink flowers in early summer.  Deciduous to semi-deciduous, we are inordinately fond of this collection and have it planted at the entrance to our shade garden. This particular collection is quite rare in the trade.  Tony used to be the director at Wakehurst and David was deputy director so the chain of provenance custody is just how we like it.
