Description: Bit of a puzzler the identity of this hardy species, which we have collected on a few occasions, this original collection gathered from right on the Chinese border with northern most Vietnam with Peter Wharton in 2007. Where there were small colonies formed on the exposed ridge at 2360m, of single stemmed plants only 2m tall. Bearing thick textured 5-broad foliate leaves held on bright red petioles, while in shelter the leaflets were narrower and the plants 4m tall, some with a few branches. Clearly related to S. alpina the foliage emerging with the same purple colouration, indicative of this group. Best grown in a good fertile well drained soil in sun or light shade, protect from severe cold while young.
