This amazing Chinese cast iron plant has wide, glossy evergreen leaves on a short petiole. Each leaf is heavily speckled with small golden spots...many more than on Aspidistra 'Stretch Marks'. Aspidistra guangxiensis is one of the latest flowering aspidistra species...if you remember to look, the ground around the base will be covered in early June (NC) with bizarrely unusual maroon and yellow flowers that resemble those cartoon characterizations of the sun. In cold winters below 15 degrees F, the foliage may be deciduous.
