This selection of a Thailand native cast iron plant was shared by Chanrit Sinhabaedya of Thailand. Aspidistra yingjiangensis 'Bangkok's Big Bang' produces 36" long x 1.5" wide leaves of dark green, highlighted by small- to medium-sized yellow spots. Aspidistra 'Bangkok's Big Bang' is similar to Aspidistra 'Singapore Sling' but with smaller spots. For us, Aspidistra yingjiangensis, discovered in 1989, has been winter-hardy to 10 degrees F, although the leaves burn to the ground and the new foliage doesn't emerge before mid-June.
