Product Details

Product Details

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.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Lovely shade ground cover

Plant Addict from Indiana, PA

Very well behaved. Slow growing so far. The local bugs don't munch on it

Plant in rich, moist, slightly acid soil in shade. To prevent winter burn of the evergreen leaves in cold climates, choose a site that is sheltered from both winter sun and strong winds. In Zone 6, provide winter protection (see information on Winter protection) for Asarum splendens. May be slow to become established, but where happy, plants will eventually spread by rhizomes (horizontal stems). Asarum europaeum may self-sow.
