Cistus Nursery

*RETAIL - Aspidistra lurida 'Ginga'

*RETAIL - Aspidistra lurida 'Ginga'

*THIS SIZE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN OUR RETAIL NURSERY

Often sold in the United States as 'Milky way", this one in no way resembles that one. The Japanese name 'Ginga' means "spotted and streaked" and this plant is that. Stunning purple flowers, often called "spider eggs", appear in early spring but can only be appreciated by lying belly down in an accommodating gardener's garden. Worth the trouble. Part shade to deep shade with little or no summer water necessary. Frost hardy in USDA zone 7.
