Asarum pulchellum Longacre

Archive entry 28.01.07

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 Longacre and is only very sparsely hairy on the underside. These flowers are quite shallowly cup shaped. Similar flowers that are longer, or slightly waisted are probably not this species.
