Rohdea: An Evergreen Shade Option

One of our landscape designer/host says Rohdea (Sacred Lily) is the most under used dependable performing perennials for shade. The biggest attribute is that it remains evergreen in winter. This plant is native to southeast Asia. It mimics an evergreen hosta in the landscape.Deep green, leathery leaves spring from a central growing point followed by inconspicuous flowers that later provide showy cones of red berries nestled in the foliage. Rohdea tolerates dry shade.
