Aspidistra are indigenous to the Far East. Introduced to Britain in the 1820s they became hugely popular and eventually, to their cost, symbolised the bourgeoisie, notably in literature. Until the 1980s they had been little researched, but now there is a resurgence in interest and Aspidistras are back! It is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence.
