This amazing Crug Farm collection of cast iron plant comes from Dungpu, Taiwan, where it forms dense colonies in the well-drained forest soil. The dark evergreen leaves, highlighted with a few small yellow spots, reach 40" tall x 3" wide. This is a cast iron plant you will certainly grow for the showy flowers...the most floriferous aspidistra we've ever seen. The stunning 2" creamy yellow flowers with peach centers magically appear en masse around Christmas atop the soil surface, resembling plates of sauteed yellow starfish...fascinating. In the garden at 8 degrees F, the old foliage burned off, but the plants regrew nicely in spring.
