Codonopsis Plants

Codonopsis thalictrifolia ssp. thalictrifolia


A true alpine plant, often growing at 4000 metres above sea level, that can be found in Tibet, Nepal and Sikkim, where this photograph was taken. There is a close relative, C.thalictrifolia ssp. mollis that is only found in S.E. Tibet. This latter species has larger flowers with a slightly different shape.
