Chloranthus sessilifolius var. austrosinensis is another member of the unappreciated Asian genus of woodland plants, chloranthus. Chloranthus sessilifolius var. austrosinensis hails from 2,000'-4,000' elevation forests in the Chinese provinces of Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou, and Jiangxi. For us, Chloranthus sessilifolius var. austrosinensis makes a 20" tall x 30" wide clump of upright stalks clothed with rubbery, green, 6" long x 4" wide leaves. The stalks are topped with short, dangling, terminal spikes of tiny white flowers starting in mid-April (NC)...a great easy-to-grow bold textural plant for the woodland shade garden.
