This member of the Scrophulariaceae family was
given this name by William Botting Hemsley in 1890. It is found in
China and Vietnam's bamboo forests, growing in a rich but well
drained soil with quite some water and some sun. The rots can
grow to five centimetres, the plant up to one or even one and a half
meter. The flowers are maroon with a green outer.
The genera name from Latin:
scrophulae; a gland disease at pigs; skrofa, with this
plant could cure. The species name means 'from Ningpo' in China.
