Aspidistra eliator 'Milky Way'

We often get asked for 'low light' plants. This is the best.

The Victorians called this the Cast Iron Plant because it could withstand almost anything. A great low light plant that grows slowly, a real plus if you don’t want to deal with it outgrowing your space, or too much repotting. In fact the only things Aspidistra really hate is full sun - leaves will bleach out. The 'Milky Way' has an attractive speckled variegation making it a unusual collectors plant. 

This plant will fit in any of our pots or Teketeke collection bags labelled Size 6.
