Aspidistra 'Uan Fat Lady'

29th March 2006

Came out of the box this morning looking wonderful!

Low growing with broad spotted leaves that have a broad central yellowish streaking.

Very similar to A.typica 'Old Glory' and also A. 'Yunnan Sunbeam'. They all have impeccable provenance, but they may turn out to be a single widely distributed clone introduced from a number of locations.

This one was introduced from the Watanabi Brothers nursery in Japan by Bleddyn and Sue Wynn-Jones at Crug Farm Plants, though it is presumed to have originated in China.

It has been pointed out that this is not a form of A.saxicola, so for now she will be both fat and nameless!
(Though there is a suggestion that it might be a form of A.zongbayi).
