(aka: Aspidistra sp. A1TW-240b) Aspidistra 'Yushan Galaxy' is our 2008 collection from Taiwan's Hualien County at 2,100' elevation, where they occurred in huge shaded masses on forested slopes. The 28" long x 3" wide dark green leaves of Aspidistra 'Yushan Galaxy' are adorned with heavy yellow speckling. The upturned, quarter-sized flowers (purple with peach tips) can be found hugging the ground in January...if you venture outdoors to look. Aspidistra 'Yushan Galaxy' was burned to the ground in our garden at 9 degrees F in 2013/2014, but resprouted nicely.
