Aspidistra linearifolia is a little-known cast iron plant species discovered in 1987, that 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' is a Plant Delights selection that 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!
