Description
 
This robust Chinese groundcover was shared with us by one of the great unsung planthunters of our era, Steve Hootman.  We've seen other species of this genus in Sichuan and have always been ensnared by its curious small whitish flowers in clusters on short stems.  Saxifrage family, this is strongly stoloniferous in moist shade and makes a dense groundcover with its large leaves acting as a good weed suppressant.  The leaves have a nice flesh to tan colors during new growth.
