Really good selection by Tony Avent from a collection on Korea's Jeju Island.  This has closely set somewhat rounded leaves on stems that are slightly twisted giving the effect of a spiral staircase.  The degree that this is apparent is directly correlated to how misspent and experimental your youth was.  White flowers.  Rock hardy.

A very uncommon plant in North America - we have not seen it listed elsewhere - and one we brought across the pond from the lamentably late Michael Wickenden of Cally Gardens in Scotland.  This is a much smaller version of this cold hardy species with dense low foliage of nicely deeply lobed leaves.  The leaves take on fall color before dormancy and the early spring white flowers are welcome indeed if they escape being frosted.  Just a few available.
