Reineckea carnea 'Jinfo Jewel' MD 10-171


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
A distinctly smaller form with wider and shorter leaves than any of the dozen or so clones we grow. This was found on the summit of Jinfoshan where it was growing in deep moss on top of hard limestone Stegosaurus outcrops in a miniature stone forest. We thought this might be a new subspecies at least but DNA puts it squarely in R. carnea. The scented pink and white flowers are much more visible in this form than in the typical range of the species and we felt it merited a clonal name.
