Rohdea japonica

Rohdea japonica

Common name Japanese sacred lily
Family asparagaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-10)
Size 12"
Light part-full shade
Cultural notes drought-tolerant

Evergreen perennial for mostly shady exposure. Upright dark green strappy leaves arise from a slowly-spreading clump. Flowers are insignificant, but are followed by clusters of red berries on short stalks. I've seen Rohdea grow in a few public gardens, but my attempts to grow it from seed consistently failed through the years – so I finally bit the bullet and bought an established plant. Hopefully it will like its position along the north side of the house.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: foundation border
