Peltoboykinia tellimoides


A nearly monotypic genus there are only two closely related species, tellimoides is a very rare thing confined to a few wooded mountains in Honshu, the similar P. wantanabei is found on Shikoku and Kyushu. A large-leafed woodland saxifrage, foliage is a bit reminiscent of Darmera, however it bears cymes of bell shaped yellow saxifrage flowers on 2-3' stems in early summer. It has proven to be fully hardy here with no special protection; indeed, for such a rare woodlander it is virtually indestructible.____ZONE 4
