The long, narrow, heart-shaped leaves are the largest of any Asarum we’ve seen (4in by 6) and are marked with showy bands of silver that bring light to the woodland garden.
Wild Gingers are among the great foliage plants for shade. Their shapely leaves come in a variety of rich greens. Some are shiny, others have exquisite texture, and a few carry striking silvery patterns. All Wild Gingers love rich, slightly acid, organic soil with plenty of moisture, under which conditions most will spread to form distinctive ground covers of varying density. The curious, bell-shaped flowers are insignificant.
