Been musing about the occurrence of Pinellia integrifolia and
especially if it is in cultivation. This species is not listed in the
recent RHS Plant finder and Google turns up nothing. The Jellito and
Schacht "Hardy Herbaceous Perennials"(2 vol, Timber press) lists it
along with a host of mostly fairly common perennials. There are few
people who claim to have this plant, and i know it was listed on Chen
Yi a few times, but never correctly named to my best understanding.
Does anyone actually have this plant? I mean the REAL
Pinellia integrifolia. If you think you got it from Chen Yi I can
send a line drawing and a few definitive characters to help you ID
I would be eager to trade for something equally uncommon.
Mostly I am curious if this is really in cultivation i the US
Thanks for your input. Jim W.
