Aspidistra hainanensis 'Ogisu' is a Chinese collection from Japanese plant collector Mikinori Ogisu. We originally received it as Aspidistra cf. omeiense, but it was later determined to be Aspidistra hainanensis. This cast iron plant looks more like a wide-leaf clump of upright liriope than an aspidistra, so use it to fool all of your gardening friends. In our trials, Aspidistra hainanensis 'Ogisu' has shown no damage at 9 degrees F...a nice evergreen feature in the shade garden. Although it represents different genetics, we see very little difference between this and Aspidistra hainanensis 'Jade Ribbons'.
