Kirengeshoma palmata (yellow wax bells) is a species of flowering plant in the family Hydrangaceae, native to Japan and eastern China (Huangshan and Tianmushan).[1] It is a clump-forming herbaceous perennial growing to 60–120 cm (24–47 in) tall by 75 cm (30 in) broad, with sycamore-like palmate leaves, and fleshy, pale yellow flowers borne on slender maroon stems in late summer. It is a calcifuge, suitable for cultivation in a shady, moist location in acid soil.[2]
