A new introduction (the first?) of the typical variety of this most handsome of non-invasive evergreen ground cover perennials, from Guizhou, SW China, 2011. Four broad (usually) broadly obovate to elliptic shiny dark-green leaflets per rosette with a boss of rich yellow flowers at their centres, on low stems to 30cm. For shade. Rather different from the var. stenophylla and doesn't fill out as fast.
