Our collection from Longshou in Sichuan where this was a small 3'-4' rounded shrub in full exposure eking out a living on a small rock face. This is a little different than what is in cultivation as the leaves appear to have a higher degree of fine dentition on the margins and the white flowers are bunched in tubular clusters. This will be a good tough and deer resistant plant.
