Aspidistra Chen Yi S135A

19th October 2008

During the autumn this year I bought two Aspidistra from Cotswold Garden Flowers, who got them both from Chen Yi in China under the number S135. There were clearly two different clones in the group of growing plants, and I have labelled them 'S135A' and 'S135B'. It isn't very imaginative, but most of my imagination is used up convincing myself that I can see distinguishing characterisics in the genus.

Medium sized leaves, taller than many of the little creepy ones, but not as tall as the classic clumpers. This one has leaves marked with a light scattering or fairly large yelow spots.
