Aspidistra yingjiangensis 'Singapore Sling' is an unusual cast iron plant that is quite popular at the Thailand flower markets but has only recently come to the US. 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.
