Seed ripenslate September

Japanese woodland perennial. We grow it primarily for the handsome, large palmate leaves. Our plants have flowered for the past few years, but their presence is rather understated. Up-close inspection of the flowers, however, reveals a rather unusual shape.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
