(N. China, Korea) We received this large-leaved herbaceous perennial under the name Acerphyllum rossii about 20 years ago. Although the plant has easily survived the visicitudes of our weather, its former name has not. That fact and its geographical distribution suggest that this is much hardier than we rate it. As a woodlander, its glossy palmate leaves emerge in spring together with a bloom spike which consists of small white flowers. If the site is not too hot, dry or sun-lit, the very attractive leaves persist throughout the summer before they begin their decline. The leaves of this particular form are extra-large and less leathery than the other forms we grow.
