This selection of the cast iron plant Aspidistra zongbayi comes from plant collector Barry Yinger, who got it from Japan's Kenji Hirose, who collected it in Yunnan, China. The 6" petioles end with 8" long green leaves that emerge with a wide central stripe of creamy yellow. The leaf blade arches sideways, making a 1' tall x 2' wide clump. As the leaves age, small yellow spots appear in the green border...stars and stripes, now that's patriotic. Our plants of this 1989 named species have sailed through 8 degrees F so far. We previously offered Aspidistra zongbayi as Aspidistra typica. Additionally, this is the same clone introduced by Crug Farm as Aspidistra 'Uan Fat Lady'.
