If you're looking for a bold textured evergreen to help brighten a dark corner of the garden, we've got just the plant. This old Japanese cultivar (whose name means "starry skies") of cast iron plant has large, 30" tall x 6" wide, dark green leaves that are lightly speckled with small light yellow-to-white dots (stars). Like a fine wine, our 14-year-old clumps just get better with age. This is the hardiest of the yellow-spotted cast iron plants.
