Description: Originating from Nanjing Botanic Gardens to cultivation in the USA, then trialled and distributed by Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery, NC. Where they state that this clone is winter hardy for them to -15C. Thriving in their gardens soon forming 60 cm wide and tall clumps of ovate-lanceolate foliage with dramatic raised veins. Arising from a creeping rhizome which is best grown at or just below the surface of the compost/soil, as the 4 - 6 lobbed purple flowers are borne directly from the rhizome. Care should be taken not to allow the ground/compost it grows in to get water-logged.
