Our 2017 introduction of Aspidistra hainanensis 'Quan Ba' came from our 2005 expedition to North Vietnam. We stumbled on this cast iron plant at 3,800' elevation in Ha Giang Province, near the town of Quan Ba, just south of the border with Yunnan, China. In the ground or in containers, Aspidistra 'Quan Ba' forms a 26" tall clump, composed of 3' long x 1.5" wide green leaves that arch toward the tip. We've had this in the ground since 2008 where it barely survived 9 degrees F, although it would prefer warmer climes.
