This evergreen Solomon Seal lookalike represents a rare introduction from Taiwan by our friends at Crug Farm. Originally described as the new species, taiwanensis in 1989, this was sunk into the Chinese species pernyi by Govaerts in 2000. We could live with that if it was pernyi var. taiwanensis to indicate its unique geographical provenance. Pretty cool either way.
The form matching best with the species description. This is a low-growing evergreen Solomon Seal ally from China and has a more refined look than other forms of this species which we grow. Nice white flowers with a bit of caramel amber added and purplish fruit that follows.
Evergreen Solomon Seal relative from Taiwan via plantsman Ozzie Johnson. Loves moist shade in zones 7-9 where the rounded leaves on stems up to a foot shelter the hanging white bell flowers. Combines well with all of those shade garden plants that any self respecting plant collector loves so rest assured that garden harmony will remain intact.
This clone came from a knowledgeable plantsman in Vietnam and no data as to whether it was from a wild collection or a cultivated plant originating from China. Evergreen Solomon Seal relative with white bells under upright and slightly arching stems clad in alternate green leaves. Hardy in Kansas.
Collected by Riz Reyes in Sichuan in 2005, this is a superb form of the species with the largest flowers of any of the clones we grow. Admittedly, Disporopsis in flower will never make the cover of glossy magazine but this is good. Whitish flowers with yellowish tones in the interior. Evergreen to 24".
Our collection from the Erlangshan in Sichuan in 2006 of a robust form of the species. White flowers in small bells held under the evergreen stems. Of the 8 or so clones of this species, this collection is easily the most vigorous spreader and held its evergreen foliage quite nicely through 6 nights of 15F. Shade is good.
This is a clone from a wild collection in China which came to us from a friend and we have finally a few to offer. Evergreen leaves in our climate looking a lot like a Solomon Seal with similar white bells in spring. The lavender fruits offer a subtle attraction in the shade garden later in the season. We clip the old stems off in spring as the new starts to grow.
Extreme rarity from the summit of Jinfoshan where this was found growing in moss and leaf litter atop a narrow shoulder of hard limestone napped in snow from the night before. A diminutive species to just 3" tall with small evergreen thumbnail leaves and small white flowers touched in rose on the interior. Light lavender fruit follows.
A collection from the mountains of northern Luzon in the Philippines by the folks at Crug Farm. This has the same evergreen nature as the other species with arching Solomon Seal-esque stems to 16", narrow elliptic leaves, white flowers and purplish fruit. This is a good grower for mild gardens, rare of course.
