Most welcome, judiths.

Amazing, thanks for this beauty.

Nope. I can see how they could naturally travel via wind or bird from China to Japan, or vice versa. But the Appalachians and not any other mountainous locale that has the same conditions? Some missionary/ies brought that flower back home.

Tincup

Yes. That must be it.

Tincup

A few geologic ages ago?

patw

Someone brought some home in their suitcase?

Tincup

Ditto.
I wonder how this plant is located in Japan, China, and the Appalachians...

Bill_I_Am

Yes, I would!

Thanks, Bill. And wouldn't you love to see one when it's just starting to rain, Marilee and BIll?

Tincup

Pat this is phenomenal! Thanks for posting.

I've seen pictures (and maybe even a puzzle?) of these before. They're so cool! According to Bored Panda:

"The plant grows on moist, wooded mountainsides in colder regions of Japan, China and the Appalachian Mountains in the United States, and is instantly recognizable by its large, umbrella-like leaves."

They also have more pictures and a video on their page:

Thanks, Pat!
