This must be a Japanese origin by the look of it. By "it", I meant "name"; Mount Nachi!

The fortunei group originally came from Japan, Korea and N. China, according to a book I have.

Ok thanks for the info!
My parents said the leaves were edible; good to make tempura with, like chrysanthemum leaves/flowers. I love chrysanthemum tempura; it's got a hint of unique bitterness/flavour (but a pleasant one) and looks pretty too.

I never eat anything I'm not sure of in the garden!

That's the spirit!
Better to be sure before you eat anything!!

Looked at it today, I have had it a long while maybe 10 years, it is still quite small but possibly there are now 3 rosettes?
