My aspidistra - in flower!

I bought a section of aspidistra from Gumtree and collected it on the Sunday before lockdown in March. The clump had recently been removed from the mother plant who herself was created in 1997 when the Hale Bopp comet was visible.  
My plant is named Gracie Covid, daughter of Hale Bopp.  I discovered this underwhelming flower this morning, just ten weeks short of planting her.  I called the chap who sold it to me and he was amazed, he's only seen an aspidistra flower about twice in 30 odd years!
I thought that I'd share this with you.
