Aspidistra guangxiensis 'Spiderman', a 2013 Plant Delights Nursery introduction is an unspotted leaf form of Chinese cast iron plant. The 18" tall leaf stalks are adorned at the leaf base in midsummer with clusters of 2" wide spider-like flowers of purple and yellow...very cool in the garden where it's winter hardy and as a containerized houseplant further north. While Aspidistra 'Spiderman' has survived single digits F in our garden, the foliage is burned to the ground, and new growth doesn't start before August.
