Aspidistra hekouensis - BWJ15207

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A real puzzler when I first found this new species to cultivation in northern Vietnam in the spring of 2017, where it had not been found before. The puzzle arose, as the drawings accompanying the original description was incorrect, in particular of the exterior of the flower, which was shown to be all ridged. Whereas it is the interior that is all ridged and only rugose on the exterior of the flower. It turned out to be relatively common in the area, in flower on long extended peduncles, when I discovered it growing on very steep limestone karst, covered in dense forest. Not likely to be hardy as the altitude was only 355m, growing in a well drained limestone based soil.
