This superb selection of Aspidistra elatior forms a commanding 3' wide, evergreen clump in the garden with 3' tall x 5" wide, glossy, dark green leaves. Each leaf is composed of an 18" stalk topped with an 18" blade which is highlighted with narrow, central creamy-yellow streaks and a very narrow white border at the tip. According to our friend Barry Yinger, the 'Fuji-No-Mine' means "crags on Mt. Fuji"...we'll take his word. This cast iron plant has been a great performer in our garden trials.
