National Collection of the Genus Codonopsis and Allied Genera
Codonopsis subsimplex is a species with a large range being found in Bhutan,Tibet, Nepal and Northern India. Chris Sanders has photographed this on his trip to Sikkim. Although occasionally offered by nurseries we have never found it to be correct and the fact that it has no stand out features probably accounts for the confusion. It is quite a small plant and erect to about 70cm.
