I bought this last fall....now I can't find my notes telling me *why* I 
bought it. Typical, eh?

All I know is that it is a Chinese medicinal. Distribution is throughout 
China, as well as Cambodia, India, Japan, Korea, Philippines and, Sri 
Lanka. I *think* it wants damp soil. Have no clue as to sun 
requirement....I kept it in high shade over the winter.

Anybody tell me anything about it? I don't know how big it gets, bloom, 
etc. Leaves are so-so.

complete notes. (in my dreams)
