We are pleased to share this amazing disporopsis, imported by our friend, plantsman Hayes Jackson, in 2001 from China's Wuhan Botanical Garden, which is almost certainly a new, unnamed species. DNA shows that it's related to Disporopsis undulata, but unique. For us, Disporopsis 'Lily Pads' has formed a 4' wide patch in 10 years. When grown in optimum conditions like rich, evenly moist woodland soil, each stalk can reach 22" tall with leaves that are 7" long x 4.5" wide. In April, the stalks are topped with small, axillary, yellow flowers, each overlaid with a heavy brown speckling.
