Distribution  - China, Jiangxi (Kiukiang) province. It may also occur in Sichuan, Zhejiang and Hubei provinces.

Description –  A medium to large growing evergreen species, which is another one carrying yellow ‘hanging spider’ flowers. Flower stems carry two leaves each with three leaflets, margined with small spines. I like the contrast between the very pale green, inner sepals and the bright yellow, claw shaped petals.

We have one older plant which seems to happy enough, toughing it out with the slugs, snails and badgers in the garden!
