Aspidistra elatior

Aspidistra elatior
Aspidistra elatior
Most commonly we find Aspidistra elatior in the house plant section of a nursery, however, it has proven winter hardy in gardens in the Pacific North West and has recently gained a fan club here. An ideal candidate for adding to moss animal topiaries. Coming from woodland sites in Taiwan and the southern islands of Japan, it is tolerant of low light and seems unphased by irregular watering and moderate cold. Its common name Cast iron plant comes from its ability to withstand neglect. The evergreen, long lasting leaves are lance shaped coming to a sharp point. They arch up from the ground and have a twist or wave toward their ends. Their rich green gloss is a good way to bring reflected light into the garden and their size, although not overly large (on average about 20 inches long and five wide), focuses the eye in a busy garden much as a mid sized hosta might. The unusual flowers are up facing bells at ground level along the rhizome. Keep the foliage out of strong light to prevent leaf scorch. And make sure you provide adequate drainage so roots do not rot in water logged soil. Seasonality is Early summer. Measurements are around 24 inches x 24 inches Colors are Cream and Maroon flowers Hardiness Zones: 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
Price: $27.00
