Interesting and showy Japanese species that makes tidy little evergreen clumps.  This is a just too darned slow to ever make it a viable plant for mainstream nurseries but it so worth the wait.  So of course we love it!  Unusual lavender-pink flowers held well above the foliage.   These will slowly increase to make one sweet little grouping.  Good moist soil in shade.  The whole clan appeals to us beyond reason - Helonias and Ypsilandra are stellar relatives.  We have a few very chunky plants we've kept for propagation but now that we have enough in the pipeline, these stalwarts are expendable.  It's tough love here at The Farm but we know you'll do right by them.
