Aspidistra fungiliformis 'China Star'

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A small species forming low dense mats of elliptic mid green glossy leaves heavily spotted with paler green. Originally collected by Jim Waddick (of USA) in Sichuan, which would give this species a very wide distribution as it also occurs in Vietnam. Not flowered for us, but reputed to have purple urn-shaped flowers with white lobes and stigma. Easily grown in a container or in a sheltered spot in the garden, in full shade where the soil cannot waterlog.
