This well-known groundcover hails from a narrow mountain valley in Chongqing we hiked to in the rain along a narrow trail among a rich a variety of trees and large Rhododendron sutchuenense where this lolled about in the understory floor mingling with tiny Hepatica henryi, Asarum, Ophiopogon Calanthe and a curious white-flowered Sanicula.  Evergreen leaves and spreading rhizomes makes a dense carpet.  Familiar species to the point of disdain, this stands above the rabble with its Botanical Roadshow provenance.  At day's end, the scorched potatoes pulled from the coals of the local inhabitant's fire in the dim and grimy concrete block cooking room, with walls darkened by soot from ever-present smoke, merited at least one Michelin Star despite the growls of promised harm from the large dog whose restraint seemed disconcertingly fragile.
