We have not personally grown this rather new introduction from China. Our photos and cultural information have been provided by our friend Rizanino (Riz) Reyes.

From Western China, this late June / early July bloomer like a rich, moist, but well drained soil. A cousin of L. primulinum var. burmanicum which is reported to be winter hardy in England with protection, L. majoense may handle a zone 6 with heavy mulch.

Riz reports that it has done well with some competition from neighboring Western Red Cedar. Flowers are funnel shaped and down facing, pale green to creamy white with a large purple central blotch resembling L. nepalense. As it sets viable seed readily, this species could soon be more commonly seen in commerce.
