Description: A woodland semi-evergreen perennial species growing from a creeping rhizome. With a basal rosette, of small grey-green thick-textured leaves purple on their undersides, on long winged petioles. Bearing slender upright congested stems to 1m tall, with the characteristic narrow-petalled ray-flowers with scaly calyces. Growing in fairly dry conditions when we found them although it would have been moist in the growing season. Our seed collection from Phan Si Pan the highest mountain in northern Vietnam, gathered in 2006. Cultivate with care in light shade in a well drained soil with moisture retention.
