This beautiful shrub was first found in the wild during the early 1890s by an Italian missionary to China, Guiseppe Giraldi, and again in 1901 by the plant explorer E. H. Wilson. Rare in nature, the shrub was discovered on a windswept ridge in the mountains of northern Hupeh Province. Plants raised from Wilson’s seeds bloomed in Veitch’s nursery in England in 1910. One of the seedlings was sent to Arnold Arboretum in 1907 and was recognized as one of the most important shrubs ever introduced from China. American nurseries soon sold it by the thousands.
