One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Hemiboea subcapitata. Doing nicely after surviving one winter at the US National Arboretum.
All survived and they look great. There are many more flowers this year. It really is a pretty little groundcover with those dark glossy leaves. I guess the final verdict isn't in but last winter was legitimately cold so I'm tentatively confident it's a USDA Zone 7 plant. This patch is just past the stone steps that descent from the red pagoda into China Valley.
