We are pleased to introduce the virtually unknown Aspidistra leshanensis, which hails from 2,000' elevation on China's Leshan Shi, in Sichuan province. Aspidistra leshanensis is a close relative of Aspidistra sichuanensis, forming a tight evergreen clump of 28" tall, upright green leaves, spotted with small yellow dots. The upturned purple cups with white centers lay atop the soil in September. We are pleased to offer French plant explorer Cedric Basset's wild collection. We haven't had a cold winter since planting Aspidistra leshanensis in the ground, but based on its location in the wild, we're guessing Zone 7b/8a.
