A flabellatum Rehd

This species is allied to A. campbellii, from which it differs in its leaves, which are deeply cordate at the base, the margins saw-toothed throughout, and the teeth acuminate but not bristle-tipped as in A. campbellii nor so fine. A further mark of distinction is that in A. flabellatum the floral disk and ovary are glabrous (hairy in A. campbellii). A native of China (Hupeh and Szechwan); probably introduced by Wilson in 1907. It is in cultivation at Caerhays Castle and Trewithen, Cornwall, and is probably hardy except in the coldest parts.
