It interested me to notice for the first time the bulb like root stock. There are two indications of the variety var. galpinii is shown for lower altitudes in The Red list and JStorsays for the synonym Becium obovatum var. galpinii "stem and both sides of the leaves pubescent or villous with jointed hairs, otherwise as in the type". This was not observed and thus the suggested variety.
