You can avoid most of the complexities of this problem by simply removing the modifier in the middle (as well as the added info at the end) and seeing what makes sense. Thus, we have the following:

(A) A substance derived from the Madagascar periwinkle is cultivated in China.
(B) A derivative is cultivated in China.
(C) A Madagascar periwinkle derivative is cultivated in China.
(D) The Madagascar periwinkle has a derivative that is cultivated in China.
(E) The Madagascar periwinkle is cultivated in China.

Note that every choice but E states that the derivative is cultivated in China. The periwinkle, a flower, can be cultivated. The derivative, a substance, would be produced (or, of course, derived).

I hope this helps!
