(syn: Aspidistra sp. Hainan #1) This Nick Turland selection of Aspidistra fimbriata hails from 2,800' elevation in Daioluo Shan, Hainan China, where it resided underneath a forest of Dacrydium and other Fagaceae trees. Aspidistra fimbriata 'Secret Stalker' has the tallest stalks of any cast iron plant we grow. The 3' tall foliage includes a stalk of 20" topped by a 16" tall x 3" wide medium green leaf blade. At 8 degrees F the plants burned to the ground but returned in spring.
