Aspidistra vietnamensis 'Ginga' is most always sold in the trade as Aspidistra 'Milky Way'. The true Aspidistra 'Milky Way' (aka 'Amanogawa') has leaves with both stripes and spots. The 18" tall, narrow, dark green leaves are speckled creamy white, as though a low-bid painter just finished the ceiling above. In early spring, you will find the bizarre, lily pad-like flowers of rich purple at the base of the foliage, where they are usually appreciated only by snails and slugs. Aspidistras are great for southern gardens where bold foliage is needed...perfect in dry shade! We previously listed this as a form of Aspidistra lurida and of sichuanensis.
