From our friend Jim Waddick comes one of the most unique and little-known Chinese species of cast iron plant, discovered in 1977. In foliage, Aspidistra hainanensis 'Jade Ribbons' looks more like a daylily or liriope than an aspidistra. The 2' long x 0.5" wide leaves make a very tight clump, unlike other cast iron plant species. A single plant of Aspidistra hainanensis makes a wonderful, evergreen textural specimen for the woodland garden. For us, it has survived 6 degrees F with only slight foliage damage.
