National Collection of the Genus Codonopsis and Allied Genera
Growing on grassy slopes at an altitude of 3000 to 4000 metres in N. W. Sichuan and East Tibet this seemingly delicate alpine plant thrives in very harsh conditions. Here it is growing in a Suffolk garden! This is one of the very few white flowered Codonopsis. The leaves are covered in white hairs making it very distinctive.
