(aka: Aspidistra crispa) Aspidistra sichuanensis is a little known Chinese species, which we originally offered as Aspidistra fimbriata. Aspidistra sichuanensis 'Gold Lancer', a 2015 Plant Delights Nursery introduction, forms a clump of 2-3" wide, pendent-tipped leaves that can reach 32" in length. The very dark green foliage of Aspidistra 'Gold Lancer' is nicely highlighted by large yellow central bands. Aspidistra sichuanensis 'Gold Lancer' has survived 9 degrees F in our garden, but with some leaf burn. Around the base of the stalks in November, you will notice what appears to be small, shriveled, reddish prunes with the tops severed off...that's what you get for flowers...a great gag gift for the pansy and petunia crowd.
