Aspidistra elatior 'Spek-tacular' is a stunning new cast iron plant selection purchased at a flower market in Sichuan, China by our friend Linda Guy, and first introduced commercially in 2012 by Plant Delights. Aspidistra 'Spek-tacular' makes an attractive clump of 40" long, dark green leaves with arching tips. Each evergreen leaf is adorned with the most abundant yellow spotting of any clone of Aspidistra elatior we've ever seen. The evergreen 30" tall clumps look great all season, adding a wonderful bold texture to the woodland garden.
