Speirantha convallarioides is a monotypic (all alone in its genus) species found on hilly broadleaf forests up to 3,000' elevation in the Chinese provinces of Anhui, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang. In the garden, our 10-year-old clump has reached 3' in diameter. The evergreen 10" leaves radiate from a thick, slowly spreading rhizome, resembling narrow lily-of-the-valley foliage. In April-May, patches of Speirantha convallarioides are adorned with short spikes of white, alien, satellite-like flowers just topping the foliage...a superb woodland plant and quite a bit more winter hardy than books indicate.
