Thanks to plantsman Don Jacobs, who found this very rare gem in 1983 at 8,000' elevation on China's Mt. Omei (near Sichuan) growing among rhododendrons and tiarellas. The foliage resembles a New Guinea impatiens...dark, velvety green with a wide, whitish stripe down the center of the leaf. The yellow flowers, resembling shrunken goldfish, occur only in early fall. I. omeiana is stoloniferous and, when happy, will make nice patches in a moist spot in the woodland garden.
