Caltha palustris barthei

9th May 2008

This Chinese form of the species has red or reddish flowers - there are a couple of forms in cultivation, in which case this one may be additionally identified by the epithet "atrorubens" though it is a name of dubious validity. Said to be slightly more troublesome in cultivation than the yellow plant, I haven't had it for long enough to see how it manages.
