Delivered this morning in full flower. Thank you Crug Farm Plants! A deciduous species from Korea and Japan.
I was sent a small piece of rhizome from China which has sprouted to produce a single flower, which will be removed shortly to reduce the stress on the tiny rootball, and give the plant a better chance to establish. It was delivered as Asarum forbesii. Thanks to Barry Yinger for the name correction.
It has repeated the performance this year, so I think I did the right thing in removing the flower.
This one came to me as A.heterotropoides, so thanks once again are due to Barry Yinger for a correct identification.
Interesting for the greenish colour of the inside of the calyx lobes.
This one came to me as Asarum forbesii from a local nursery, though it probably originated with a Chinese nursery.
This one came from China as Asarum sieboldii.
