Very rarely offered herbaceous perennial from Western China and we don't have too many for sale.
Rich green spoon-shaped slightly haired foliage is quite thick and relatively succulent in nature. These are borne from a central bud in loose rosettes from the centre of which are produced the flower stems. These are up to around 15 cms high or so and hold rich purple flowers with a frilly edge in early summer. Fabulous. Best in rich moist soil and light shade.
