If you thought aroid taxonomy is in a shambles, try Aspidistra. For this reason, we started our on-line Aspidistra study gallery. Although it's not complete yet, it will eventually contain images of our entire collection of 105 Aspidistra species and cultivars. We are fortunate to work with several European taxonomists, most notably Dr. H.J. Tillich, who are assisting us in naming new species at an amazing rate. I hope this helps.

Almost all of what is sold and grown in cultivation as Aspidistra elatior 'Milky Way' or Aspidistra lurida 'Milky Way' is actually Aspidistra lurida 'Ginga' ("Ginga' is Japanese for Galaxy). This cultivar only has spots. The true Milky Way is rare and has spots AND stripes and is Aspidistra lurida 'Amanogawa' (Japanese for Milky Way).
