Arrow-Leaf Ginger, also known as Asarum arifolium, is native. This plant should not be confused with 'wild ginger' - the deciduous Asarum canadense. Asarum arifolium has pointy shaped leaves and is slightly taller.
Ginger is a beautiful green low growing ground cover, perfect for shaded woodland areas. Good for edging and naturalizing. All ginger can be slow growing, so have patience as it can take some time for it to become established and spread. It’s definitely worth the wait once it starts to grow! In the early spring months be careful when walking or raking out woodland gardens. Ginger produces unique purple flowers or jug like blossoms that are truly different than other perennials.
