Aspidistra sinensis 'Cosmos', originally offered as a form of Aspidistra saxicola, is a Jim Waddick introduction from the Sichuan Botanical Garden in China, that's made a fantastic container specimen, albeit insanely slow growing. The 7" long x 2.5" wide black-green leaves with almost no stalk are nicely spotted with large, vibrant creamy yellow spots. In October, take a peek at the leaf base and you'll see the cute, small purple flowers.
