A species wide ranging in eastern Asia, south to Australia; occasionally cultivated and rarely escaped in eastern North America. First collected in Michigan in Clinton Co. in 2013 by P. Carrington as a "low growing patch under oaks, autumn olive, etc."
The occurrence of this species in the Midwest was first noted by Widrlechner & Rabeler (1991), who described the growth habit as a “mounding tangle.” The rose-pink flowers and obtuse-tipped leaflets make this a very easily recognized plant.
