I'll go with E, which correctly states that the periwinkle is cultivated in China.
for A - > sounds like the substance is cultivated - which is wrong.
for B -> derivative cant be cultivated.
for C -> same problem as B
for D -> same as B + no comma before which, and extra comma before restrictive clause staring with that

Yeah, I'd have to say E as well. I was torn btw that and C but I think that Saritdey is right. I don't think you can cultivate (grow) a derivative.

A is wrong because the modifying phrase is supposed to state that the substance derived from the periwinkle has proved useful in decreasing mortality among the patients, not that the periwinkle itself is used to treat leukemia patients.
