(syn: Aspidistra sp. Hainan #3) This attractive cast iron plant hails from 2,800' elevation in a Hainan, China dacrydium/Fagaceae forest, and represents a newly named species. The 30" long leaves are composed of a 1' long petiole topped with an 18" long leaf blade. The medium green leaf blade, which arches at the tip, is heavily adorned with large creamy yellow spots...a splendid way to lighten a dark area. For us, Aspidistra fimbriata 'Tie Dye' has survived 9 degrees F in the ground but the foliage is regularly burned to the ground in winter. In climates with winters below 15 degrees F, we recommend it as a houseplant or as a gift to friends in warmer climates. Thanks to plantsman Nick Turland for sharing this with us.
