Collected orininally on the Tibet-Burma border by Paul Bonavia as H. yunnanense this is in fact a superlative form of H. spicatum with potentially huge foliage. Diffuse inflorescences of spidery flowers are a mix of white, deep orange-red and yellow and are pretty much the finest known of this species and highly superior to some clones. The uniformly red marked stems are most unusual and an added attraction. Rich soil in a warm sheltered position in sun. One of the very hardiest and tolerant of way below -10c. An easy plant.
