Codonopsis unidentified

Last year I posted a query on an unidentified Codonopsis that appeared in my garden (perhaps from ungerminated seed pots dumped out).  See the images here:

It turns out that the plant I'm growing is most likely C. lanceolata.  The best place to start searching for an identity on your unknown Codonopsis is that the excellent website by Paul Kneebone:

My plant of C. lanceolata is going nuts this year, scrambling up 5' into a Rhodie and turning back down again, with tons of buds just starting to expand.  I'll try to get some updated photos this year.
