I have about a ten Aspidistra species. I may have had Milky Way" but I think
that it is one I lost in the green house, last winter, which was
exceptionally cold
There are several groups within Aspidistra and several types of flower too.
They have a distribution including Yunan, ?Burma, Korea, Japan and ?Korea
I dont have any Rohdea but I did buy a couple of Peliosanthes this spring.
I believe that some on this forum are particularly well informed on
Aspidistra and I too would be glad to hear what they might have to say.
