This Reineckea 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.
This is a collection by Wynn-Jones in 2000 from near Baoxing Sichuan who thought at the time it was an unusual form but it is well within the gradient for typical Reineckea carneat. This is a must for the shade garden along with every other one Reineckea you can lay your hands on! Good to zone 6 and likely 5.
A very fine form both in habit and flowers which was collected at 2000m on Emeishan in Sichuan China.
