Grown from seed collected in Zhongdian, Yunnan, China in 2000 by the Alaska Rock Garden Society. Grows in full sun to part shade in moist alpine meadows at 11,000 ft elevation. Does not like to be crowded, and does not tolerate drought.

I grow these plants from seeds. I stratify seeds. Young plants I keep in pots and after this I transplant its outdoor. This year one plant gave a fruit. Fruit is edible and have orginal taste and aroma. Smell of fruits is something like smell of Datura stramonium leaves. Seeds are poisonous.
