Codonopsis sp. - need an identification

Thanks John,

I was led to a great Codonopsis website via Alpine-L  
(, and the consensus is that it most closely matches C. lanceolata or C. 
ussuriensis.  I later found a link to more photos of C. lanceolata at:
that closely resemble my plant. 

The foliage of Codonopsis convolvulacea as pictured on the site look wrong for my plant.  It seems like many plants in 
cultivation are misidentified.
