Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Rare and distinctive species endemic to the island of Ulleungdo off the coast of Korea evolving from the mainland species, H. asiatica - a great example of island species evolution. The biennial leaves are very large. Small white to palest pink flowers backed by a stylin' green involucre. A less-hardy species that does great in a cool greenhouse or alpine house and good in a zone 8-9 garden with good drainage.
