Yunnan Itea. To my knowledge, this species has the largest leaves of the genus Itea and can be from 4-5" long by 2" wide, dark green and glabrous. It is found in China from 300-10,000' elevation in the provinces of . Guangxi, Guizhou, SW Sichuan, SE Xizang, and Yunnan in a mixed forest of broadleaf and coniferous species. It has a graceful weeping form with terminal flowering racemes of 6-8". Ours  appear to be the blushest of pinks. Whether this is clonal, I do not know or maybe it is even environmentally induced. This is another one of those great plants shared with me by Dr. J.C. Raulston.
