This is from a Floden-Mitchell-Wynn-Jones 2011 collection in northern Vietnam which they thought was H. tengchongense, but upon flowering proved to be H. spicatum which was not known to occur in Vietnam.  While it would have been great to have the tengchongense, H. spicatum is a better garden performer here being reliably hardy. Unscented spidery white and coral flowers that turn into brilliant red seed pods that are arguably the showiest in the genus.
