V sympodiale Graebn
This is closely allied to both the preceding, especially to V. furcatum
, but differs in having stipules on the leaf-stalks, and in its smaller, ovate, more finely toothed leaves. It was collected in Central China by Wilson in 1900, and may be in cultivation.Another member of the group, rare in cultivation, is V. cordifolium
Wall. ex DC., a native of the eastern Himalaya, northern Burma and S.W. China. It differs from the preceding in having no sterile flowers in the inflorescence.
