(aka: Aspidistra 96CPC240) We are pleased to again offer this 2002 Plant Delights' introduction, a cast iron plant selection made in the wild in Sichuan, China, by plantsman Darrell Probst in 1996. The 10" long x 3" wide, light green foliage of Aspidistra zongbayi 'Old Glory' has a 0.75" wide yellow stripe running down the center of each leaf. As the leaves mature, they are also highlighted by a good sprinkling of yellow dots...hence the name Aspidistra 'Old Glory'. This cast iron plant is a slow-multiplier, which is a good thing in climates where aspidistras get carried away. Aspidistra zongbayi 'Old Glory' has thrived for us in the garden since 2002.
