This very rare plant slowly forms a large shrub with pinnately-lobed, green hairy leaves. From July, the white flower are borne in large flat-topped cymes with neutral marginal flowers. Performing best in acid-neutral soil, this Crug collection was a introduction of this slow growing species into cultivation after many years of searching. It was finally discovered on the high mountain Tawara-Yama in central Kyushu, Japan in 2006.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
