Plants and their People pt.2 – Beesia deltophylla

Beesia deltophylla

An evergreen perennial from Sichuan, China brought into cultivation by Dan Hinkley in 1998. Small white flowers decorate upright racemes in late spring, but most people grow it for its shade tolerance and handsome glossy foliage. The genus was named in 1915 for the plant nursery in England which financed plant expeditions of various collectors.
