This 2012-named species from our collections at Juniper Level Botanic Garden was discovered by NC plantsman, Alan Galloway, on Hong Kong's Lantau Island. The narrow 15" tall x 0.75" wide light green leaves are lightly speckled yellow. Although we have had Aspidistra gracilis 'Speckled Stalkings' planted outdoors since 2002, it burns to the ground each winter and would really prefer a home in Florida or a cozy corner indoors.
