Aspidistra linearifolia 'Skinny Dippin' is a 2008 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of our selection of the little-known cast iron plant that was just discovered in 1987. Aspidistra linearifolia hails from southern China (Hong Kong to Guizhou). The 16" long x 1" narrow green leaves make a tight 1' wide clump, being easily mistaken for a clump of liriope. Each leaf has a deep "V" in the middle, giving the appearance of a variegated stripe. Aspidistra linearifolia 'Skinny Dippin' has the most prominent white central stripe of all the seedlings we have grown. We have grown this extraordinary cast iron plant in the garden since 1999 and have never seen any winter damage, but for those in colder zones, enjoy this as a superb low-light house plant.
