This little-known Japanese selection of the Chinese Aspidistra elatior forms an evergreen clump of 2' tall x 3.5" wide, dark green leaves, each spotted with small yellow dots and dashes with a bit of faint white streaking toward the leaf tip. Each leaf, which has dramatically raised veins on the front, is composed of a 6" petiole and an 18" leaf blade. 'Sei Ryu Ho' is Japanese for "green dragon hall". Aspidistra 'Sei Ryu Ho' made it through our cold 2008/9 winter in the upper single digits.
