Has anyone else got flowering plants of Pinellia "integrifolia" from Chen=Yi?
I have 2 of 6 up and they are indistinguishable from the dreaded P. terna=ta.
The inflorescense appears identical and there are three leaflets.
Unfortunately, I do have P. ternata growing in the garden, so have fresh
material to compare. The "integrifolia" is slightly larger, but I doubt t=hat
the size difference is significant.

The only picture that I've seen of the true P. integrifolia is the line
drawing in Flora Sichuanica (p 143) which shows it to have a single leaf =and
a strong resemblance to P. cordata. Not even close to this plant!

Any opinions? Unless someone can reassure me, these things are history!
