This superb selection of Aspidistra elatior forms a commanding clump in the garden with its 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.
