Awa-no-suki Fairy Bells. This is probably the showiest Fairy Bells cultivar that I have ever seen. When I first saw this selection in Japan, it was only about 20 years ago, and the price was $600 for a 2.5"pot.  The price has dropped considerably since as you may well imagine. It is amazingly vigorous considering its delicate appearance. Give it good organic soil with uniform moisture in a woodland setting and it will thrive. Remember that this species tends to spread faster than Solomon's Seal and it won't be in the same spot next spring where you saw it last year unless one controls its spread. It has delicate white flowers with green tips on the upper echelons of its stems in late April and May here in zone 8.  It is ideal in a planter which can keep it contained, or a "bordered" planting area which can keep it constricted. This particular selection was found in Japan on Shikoku Island and even in Japan this is considered a "must-have" collector plant.
