This stunning (a word not usually used with cast iron plants) Japanese selection of the common Aspidistra elatior, forms a clump of 30" tall x 5" wide dark green leaves, highlighted on the upper half with heavily frosted white streaks. The Japanese name, 'Sekko Kan', no relation to "Wrath of Khan", means "white snowy crown." Imagine crossing Aspidistra 'Okame' with Aspidistra 'Asahi' and you get the picture. We find clumps need to be at least three years old for the full coloration to occur, so take a Siberian vacation and CHILL.
