We are pleased to be able to offer another new Chinese aspidistra, Aspidistra molendinacea, first published in 2002 from Guangxi, China. We mistakenly sold a few of these in 2001 as Aspidistra lurida...sorry Our clone of Aspidistra molendinacea has 20" long thick leaves, including a 6" basal stem. The shiny green leaves are faintly spotted yellow. For us, Aspidistra molendinacea has made a very tight growing clump with very upright foliage.
