Codonopsis meleagris

Flowering here in a Midlands garden, C.meleagris is very closely related to C.subscaposa and just as striking. In China the latter grows in Sichuan and Yunnan but  C.meleagris is only found in N.W. Yunnan on grassy slopes or open woods. The patterning on the outside of the petals seems to be much finer than its cousin’s and the tall stem (20-90cms) is never branched.
