Aspidistra omeiensis 'Jade Ribbons' (introduced as A. hainanensis) is one of part of a little-know strap-leaf group of cast iron plants that look nothing like the more typical members of the genus. Aspidistra 'Jade Ribbons' was a 1999 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a Jim Waddick selection. In foliage, Aspidistra omeiensis 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 'Jade Ribbons' makes a wonderful, evergreen textural specimen for the woodland garden. For us, it has survived 6 degrees F with only slight foliage damage.
