Aspidistra elatior 'Ippin' is a little-known Japanese selection of cast iron plant, which is quite similar to the wildly popular Aspidistra elatior 'Okame'. The 2' tall, heavily striped cream and white, evergreen leaves are wildly variable in width, from 1" wide to 3" wide. Aspidistra elatior 'Ippin' is a superb house plant in regions where it isn't winter hardy. In early winter, the burgundy purple crown-shaped flowers appear at the base of the stalks.
