Description
 
We have become unaccountably smitten by Reineckea ever since discovering a plant of this species in the Gangheba in Yunnan in 1997 which looked quite different from this form which is the one typically found in cultivation. So of course we are now actively seeking all the forms we can including subsequent collections from different areas in China but we still have a soft spot for this "original" form. This no doubt hails from Japan and has low, grassy evergreen foliage with small candles of pink-backed white flowers in June followed by little red fruits. A nice little easy slow carpeter and very good under larger Rhododendrons or as a small-scale groundcover.
