In 2004, we obtained this rare Chinese native cast iron plant with no species name. When it finally flowered, it turned out to be the little-known Aspidistra omeiensis, a species from 2,000'-3,500' elevation in Sichuan China, that was only named in 1981. Aspidistra omeiensis has 2' tall x 1" wide, heavily-pleated dark evergreen leaves that arch outward to form an 18" tall x 2' wide clump. Aspidistra omeiensis has been great in our woodland garden since 2005. The foliage is completely unique from any of the other cast iron plant species we have grown.
