Photographer: Nick Turland

Plants of northwestern Yunnan: Incarvillea zhongdianensis (Bignoniaceae) and
Androsace spinulifera (Primulaceae)

Location: Tian Chi
The following day we traveled southwest out of Zhongdian toward the mountain lake of Tian Chi. Much of the forest along the way had been logged, or ravaged by the Asian gypsy moth, but the flora was still very rich. One gully was splashed with the vivid purple flowers of Incarvillea zhongdianensis (originally described as a form of I. mairei). The pinnate leaves belong to it, whereas the pink-flowered plant to the right of center, with linear leaves, Androsace spinulifera.
