(syn: A. elatior 'Variegata') Aspidistra 'Okame' is one of the most asked about cast iron plants in our garden, so it's difficult to keep up with demand. The 30" tall, dark green upright leaves are highlighted with dramatic vertical white stripes...imagine spilt milk. In the Deep South, this slowly expanding clumper makes a bold evergreen accent even in dark shade. At the northern end of the range Aspidistra 'Okame' may suffer from winter burn which is easily relieved by a spring haircut. The bizarre flowers of this cast iron plant, resembling a dwarf pepperoni pizza, occur at the leaf base in very early spring.
