Aspidistra grandiflora 'Big Spotty' is our first introduction of the Vietnamese cast iron plant, which was only identified as a new species from southwest of Hanoi in 2007. Aspidistra grandiflora 'Big Spotty' forms an 18" tall x 2' wide specimen of glossy green, 4" wide leaves, each heavily spotted with large, bright yellow dots. Looking at the bright sun for about a minute produces the same effects, but looking at the plant has far fewer long-term health repercussions. In June, watch the soil at the base of the leaves for the appearance of the amazing flowers that look like giant yellow spiders sunning themselves.
