Pyrgophyllum yunnanensis

 Pyrgophyllum yunnanense

Barely in cultivation – this rare hardy ginger is an easy and long-lived species in the garden, though slow to multiply. I’ve had it in the border here for 10 years. 

Pyrgophyllum yunnanense
A distinctive leafy clump-forming plant with yellow flowers, to about 12 ins tall. I grow it among woodlanders but seems adaptable.
