Aspidistra lurida ginga is one of the commonly called cast iron plant. A tough and showy plant with long strap like leaves held upright usually 1 to 3 feet tall and 3 to 4 inches wide. Each leaf is covered in small specks of white dots. It is a tough plant and I recently seen some very impressive mature clumps 3 tall that were unlike any I had seen before. It is a much more showy plant than I had thought. Flowers are held at the base and rarely noticed. However they are very hardy handling regular cold spells and surviving zone 7 and even colder if in a protected area.

Aspidistra sichuanensis 'Ginga' is most always sold in the trade as A. 'Milky Way'. The true A. 'Milky Way' does not appear to be cultivated in the US and has leaves with both stripes and spots. The 18" tall, narrow, dark green leaves are speckled creamy white, as though a low-bid painter just finished the ceiling above. In early spring, you will find the bizarre, lily pad-like flowers of rich purple at the base of the foliage, where they are usually appreciated only by snails and slugs. Aspidistras are great for southern gardens where bold foliage is needed...perfect in dry shade! We previously listed this as a form of Aspidistra lurida.
