Aspidistra is a perennial herbaceous plant that has creeping superficial rhizomes, single or collected in small bunches, with little or no stem, whole leaves, and fleshy bell- or cup-shaped flowers of various shapes, colors, and sizes. This plant is very well suited for novice flower growers, because it does not need a careful and special approach, everyone can handle this flower.
Aspidistra is native to Southeast and East Asia. Plants of this genus are part of the terrestrial flora in the humid forest regions of Eastern India, Taiwan, and Japan. And yet, the largest number of species is found in the Chinese province of Guangxi.
It is an evergreen rhizomatous perennial that grows to 24 in (60 cm) tall and broad, with glossy dark green leaves 12–20 in (30-50 cm) long and fleshy, 8-lobed cream flowers with maroon coloration on the inner surface that bloom in early summer.
Flowers, like leaves, have relatively short petioles; therefore, the flowering of the aspidistra plant is a pleasant surprise for many green thumbs. A thick, spherical, or pear-shaped berry with one or more seeds forms after the flower has been pollinated.
