Ghost Spots Aspidistra. I found this selection of Aspidistra in a small specialty nursery in Japan. Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery has assisted me in correctly identifying this species and it has been determined that it is the species A. sichuanensis. It has incredibly long leaves which will stand 40-45" tall. Its petiole is approximately 20" and its leaves are approximately 20" to make its total height. The only selection that I know with longer leaves is A. sichuanensis 'Spek-tacular' with its 57" tall leaves which we have measured here. The present cultivar name that I have given it is for its surreal "ghostly" spots sprinkled liberally throughout its leaves as one can easily see from the photos. It has been very persistent with almost no tip burn during the winter.
