Aspidistra yingjiangensis 'Singapore Sling' is a 2007 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of an unusual cast iron plant that is quite popular at the Thailand flower market. Our plant was shared by the late plantsman Alan Galloway from his Thailand travels. The 3' long x 2" wide, dark green leaves are heavily spotted with large creamy yellow spots. If you're having trouble visualizing, think about a green whip used to beat a glass of milk into submission, and you've got the picture. Aspidistra 'Singapore Sling' is the tallest of the spotted leaf cultivars and will make a stunning house plant where it is not winter hardy. Aspidistra has good deer-resistance, but if deer are a problem in your home, we really can't help you.
