Asarum hartwegii

Asarum hartwegii comes from the Sierra Nevada in California and just stretching into Oregon. I have had this plant for a number of years and hope that it is correctly named, the long extensions to the calyx lobes are a bit long, and should be more reflexed, if photos from American wild flower guides are representative.

This picture shows the evergreen leaves of a plant that I don't think is the real thing. Flowers expected shortly to confirm it. This plant has leaves with pale reticulated veins, but I have seen green leaved and heavily silvered forms.

I was right to be suspicious. This turned out to be a form of Asarum maximum

Further research shows that this is the real thing.
