Description
 
Our collection of this distinct form from the summit of Jinfoshan where it grew in the moss on the shaded vertical face of a hard limestone rock face.  Small dark green round leaves colored in deep maroon on the reverse and flower stems covered in long red hairs upon first emergence, elongate 8"-12" to bear a small cloud of white flowers.  This population was extirpated within two years of our visit as were many other plants due to the mountain being developed for tourism without regard for flora of fauna.  This is a scene we have seen repeated all too often.  Hardy to zone 6b and likely lower.
