Description: A delicate looking variety of this unusual woodland species, which we found in a forest clearing on Mt Kirishimayama on the island of Kyushu in southern Japan in the autumn of 2006. Where it only formed tiny plants in the starved conditions, with very distinct hastate (arrow-shaped) to deltoid (triangular as in delta) leaves irregularly long lobed and/or sharply long toothed, that would normally be 15 cm across. Bearing a terminal loose panicle of tubby funnel-shaped white ray flowers, to 70cm tall in gardens, August-October. Best grown in a well drained fertile soil with some moisture retention in either part or full shade. Syn. Cacalia.
