You're right - I forgot, one of my friends had said "GINGA" - thanks for the correction and the clarification. Thanks! Jude

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).

I cannot address the finer points of taxonomy. However, Hortus III suggests
that most material sold under the name of A. lurida is, in fact A. elatior.
