A fabulous Dan Hinkley introduction, from a 1998 Sichuan Province collecting trip, False Bugbane sports slender spikes of dainty white flowers poised above dapper heart-shaped leathery foliage with a marooninfused lacquer-like sheen. The low growing evergreen rosette slowly forms a splendid undemanding ground cover that is further enhanced by intriguing venation, softly toothed foliar margins and purplish brown petioles. Beesia deltophylla belongs to the Buttercup family and is well-suited for the woodlands or underneath high canopies, where it glimmers amid companions such as Corydalis, Cyclamen or Ferns and revels in moist but not soggy compost-enriched soil.
