The Reverend Moyes' first name was James, and he was at the China Inland Mission in what is now K'ang-Ting, Sichuan. Herbaria collection points for R. moyesii center on K'ang-Ting but range northeast to the village of Wenchuan and southwest to the mountains of Yunnan Provence (GBIF database), and are all above 6,000 feet with a few as high as 13,000 feet.

Info says "Origin: Discovered (1903) by E.H. Wilson. " however it was infact brought to Europe in 1890 by the british missionary J Moyes who sent seeds to Louis L. Vilmorin and it was introduced as a garden plant in 1894.. Wilson just descripted it in 1903.

We believe that E.H. Wilson was actually in China visiting Reverend Moyes. The connection Moyes-Vilmorin is found on a Swedish website. Do you know of any references in literature?
