Aspidistra minutiflora 'Leopard' is a 1999 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a truly unique cast iron plant. For us, it forms a dense, symmetrical evergreen clump to 32" tall, but with narrow, ribbon-like leaves only 0.5" wide. Each green leaf is heavily speckled with large golden spots. Aspidistra 'Leopard' makes a stunning specimen for the woodland garden in the Deep South and a great house plant further north. Our plants were shared by plantsman Jim Waddick from one of his expeditions to China.
