(Aka: A. sp. QCSIIM-13) Aspidistra fungilliformis 'China Star' is a 1999 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a Jim Waddick's 1985 wild collection from the Qing Cheng San Mountains of Sichuan. Aspidistra 'China Star' is clothed with 8-10" long x 2.25" wide medium green leaves, heavily speckled with muted tiny yellow "freckles." Aspidistra 'China Star' makes a lovely groundcover where winter hardy via long-spreading rhizomes, which are home to the lovely white ground-hugging flowers in January. In colder climates, Aspidistra fungilliformis makes a superb, easy-to-grow, very low-light house plant.
