Saruma henryi is one of the most garden-worthy introductions to come out of China in years. This rare Aristolochia family member (cousin to asarum...notice saruma is a re-combination of the same letters) makes a 2' tall x 3' wide clump of upright stalks clothed with 5" wide, fuzzy, light-green, heart-shaped leaves. From early spring through late summer, saruma is topped with 0.75" buttery yellow flowers...a splendid addition to a well-drained site in the woodland garden and a great way to fool the neighborhood gardening know-it-all! You will see a few self-sown seedlings after the second year.
