Aspidistra elatior 'Spek-tacular' is a stunning new selection of cast iron plant, purchased at a flower market in Sichuan, China by our friend, Linda Guy and first introduced commercially in 2012 by Plant Delights. Aspidistra 'Spek-tacular' makes an attractive clump of 40" long dark green leaves with arching tips. Each evergreen leaf is adorned with the most abundant yellow spotting of any clone of Aspidistra elatior that we've ever seen. The evergreen 30" tall clumps look great all season, adding a wonderful bold texture to the woodland garden.

Info

Shared with us by plantsman, Linda Guy, this wonderful cast iron plant, growing to over 3' tall with narrow dark green leaves, has way spotted leaves held upright, almost glowing with the creamy spreckles. Clumps to about 4' wide in a reasonable time. Able to withstand dark shade to dappled light but bleaches in too much sun. Prefers damp well drained soil. Excellent container. Frost hardy to 0 °F, USDA zone 7.
