This is one of the three species of Aspidistra that grow in Taiwan. This one was introduced by Bleddyn and Sue Wynn-Jones under their number BSWJ 377, found growing in dense shade, near Tungpu.

It produces yellowish green star shaped flowers in mid-winter. My plant has leaves that are very lightly spotted with yellow dots, but I understand that there are heavily spotted forms around as well.

As it gets larger it is forming a good clump of arching leaves, though I don't have a good picture of it yet.
