What an amazing little plant this has been in our garden trials. This collection of Bleddyn and Sue Wynn-Jones from 10,000' in elevation was found inhabiting rock crevices in the mountains of Taiwan. For us, it has proven to be an amazing, thick groundcover resembling a mass of dwarf ferns. Its identity is given away by the soft, prickly-foliaged white flowers and red fruit (reportedly edible, but not by us). In well-drained rich soils, it spreads quite fast, covering an area 3' wide in one season...less in more hostile conditions.
