Aspidistra carnosa is one of the more unusual cast iron plants, looking more like a giant liriope. Our offering of Aspidistra carnosa 'Rigid Ribbons' is a North Vietnamese collection brought to the US by plantsman Barry Yinger. The 2' tall x 1" wide, deeply pleated, arching, green leaves form an evergreen clump, adorned at ground level in early February with heavily corrugated, quarter-sized burgundy flowers, each resembling everyone's favorite plant, Audrey Jr. Aspidistra carnosa 'Rigid Ribbons' makes a great houseplant where it isn't winter hardy.
