Asarum pulchellum FTF

Archive entry 10.02.08

A Chinese species with running rhizomes that produce short upright stems bearing two leaves and a tiny furry round flower with creamy white reflexed corolla lobes.

I am having trouble sorting out the differences between this, Asarum leptophyllum and Asarum himalaicum (which I don't grow). A few more flowering seasons might help. This form came from Fir Tree Farm, and has hairy undersides to the leaves.
