A distinct form of this dwarf species collected near the former Tibetan town of Kangding in Sichuan. With a huge Chinese influx, Kangding has grown to well over 20X it's orignial size in the the last 20 years. This petite species is often found in close-cropped alpine grasslands and this pure white form with its small orchid-like flowers is delectable.
