Saw this plants in the shade in Savannah, GA and Orlando but never saw it in the nursery. I would like to get some of these and what kind of plants are these?
What plant is this?
Actually Aspidistra elator....very common Cast Iron Plant....really invasive.
I agree. I even have one in the front yard. In your pic, it looks like a variegated cultivar.
I'm not sure it's variegated - mine get sun burn and that's what it looks like to me. Yes, it's VERY invasive - I have it all across the front of my home and fight it all the time. It looks ratty and generally messy all the time!
I'm kind of surprised to hear "invasive" for this plant. I've had a stand of it for about 10 years now, and I've not found it to be invasive at all… I sorta wish it was! In this area that I have it . I know that it certainly does not like the sun, but for me, it has been very well behaved. I think I do see a small amount of variegation that growin is talking about…A slight "vein" in the center of the leaf. I give this plant a thumbs up! :-)
I was surprised this plant survived being sprayed with herbicide by my wonderful neighbours. Tough thing but certainly isn't invasive here.
