(aka: Aspidistra GS form 1) We were pleased to introduce Aspidistra basalis in 2010, which was subsequently published as a new species in 2012 from our collections. Aspidistra basalis 'Green Jeans' is a clone originally shared by the late plantsman, Greg Speichert who obtained it from China's Nanjing Botanic Garden. Aspidistra basalis 'Green Jeans' has made a great woodland garden plant here at Juniper Level for over a decade, during which time it has formed a nice 4' wide patch of very dark glossy green, 30" tall x 1.5" wide leaves. Aspidistra basalis 'Green Jeans' flowers in January with earthball fungus-like, purple blushed flowers at ground level...be sure to call all your friends when it flowers. On second thought, if these wierd flowers excite you that much, you probably don't have any friends.
