We are pleased to once again offer the rare Chinese aspidistra, Aspidistra molendinacea, first published in 2002 from Guangxi, China. This is one of the slowest growing cast iron species in our collection, so supplies are always limited. Our clone of Aspidistra molendinacea has been fine in our Zone 7b garden since 2008, where it produces very thick 20" long, rigidly upright leaves that include a 6" basal stem. The shiny green leaves are faintly spotted yellow.
