1 GALLON CAST IRON PLANT
USDA Zones 6-11
The 'Cast Iron Plant' gets it's name for how tough & hardy it is! It can be used in places where all other plants fail. This virtually hassle-free, leafy evergreen will tolerate a range of growing conditions including heat, aridity, & dry shade. It can reach up to 2' tall with a spread of 2-3'. While it can bloom, this plant is grown for its showy foliage.
As a house plant, Aspidistra is best for low-light situations. Looking for a tall, lush plant to make a statement well inside a room? This is the plant for you! It doesn't need to be close to a window & is so easy any plant beginner can take care of it!
Outdoors, the 'Cast Iron Plant' is excellent for those difficult-to-fill areas in deep shade, spreading gently by underground stems. It is always green, long lasting, & can be used in areas where all else fails. Aspidistra can handle deep shade under deck stairs or along foundations that receive almost no sunlight.
Plant it with a Strawberry Begonia! Both will tolerate shade perfectly! The Aspidistra will create a tall, leafy, & lush statement piece with the Strawberry Begonia closer to the ground as a mat like ground cover. What a pair!
Once established, water occasionally. Increase watering during hotter months.
You will receive this plant bare root without a pot. Your plant will have 3+ leaves.
**LARGER PLANTS ARE AVAILABLE. If you’re looking for a larger plant, message us! Those we have will cost more (due to larger size) & may have additional shipping & handling fees. Due to their size, we may have to ship them in a box larger than 20”. Once your box is larger than 20”, USPS charges additional fees for the extra space it takes up in the mail truck. In light of this fact, we will have to add an additional shipping & handling fee. With that being said, we always ship as economically as possible & always refund any additional fee that may be paid due to error in shipping calculations.
