Wild Ginger

Asarum caudatum

Plant Description

Lush slow-growing groundcover with shiny, heart-shaped dark green leaves that frequently persist through winter. Maroon to white aromatic orchid-like flowers hide under the mound of green leaves. A delicious ginger aroma wafts from the roots if they’re disturbed. Beautiful, well-behaved mounded ground cover for shady areas.
