HISTORY
Lore This genus contains over 40 different species mostly native to China and Japan. H. plantaginea reached Europe in the 1780s, the species from which most modern hybrids descend. Due to the staggering number of existing hybrids that have been crossed and recrossed, plus the advances in tissue culture, ancestry of this and most modern hybrids is murky at best.
