I dug this out from behind a bush where it wasn't doing so well a couple of years ago. Its deciduous and I potted it on at the start of this year still not knowing what it was. When I spotted a Sparrmania Africana in Hampden Court I thought I'd finally ID'd it. Sure, its not meant to be hardy, I thought ours had just gotten used to the neglect.
This summer when some buds popped up I was fairly sure I'd be proved right...and I'm definitely not. I did try the plant identifier but I'm not entirely sure what shape the pale, yellow flowers fall under. The large leaves are rough and hairy.

Thank you Samantha Jane,

Hi Silentboo, here is Kirengeshoma palmata listed in Shoot. Add to your plants I have list so you don't forget the name.

Cheers Nicola

YAY! Thank you- that's the one. Going to add it to my list now and find it the perfect spot.

Have also uploaded those photos, along with one of the climbing handel growing outside my kitchen window as it makes me smile each time I catch a glimpse of it.
