Aspidistra sichuanensis 'Despot'

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
In this cultivar the leaf is marked by lots of pale spotting. Similar to most species it arises from a relatively strong slowly creeping rhizome, forming small colonies of upright parchment textured glossy evergreen leaves which are oblong-lanceolate to 43 cm long by about 8 cm wide on petioles to 25 cm long. Whilst still bearing the annual flowering directly from the rhizome (hence do not bury them deeply) solitary campanulate 6-lobed purple flowers late summer to autumn. We have grown this species outside for many years in shelter from freezing winds in a soil that does not waterlog, in dense to light shade.
