Asarum canadense (wild ginger)
wild ginger (quart)
Wild ginger is a native spring wildflower that grows in rich woods and wooded slopes. Easily grown in average, medium to wet, well-drained soil, in part shade to full shade. Prefers constantly moist, acidic soils in heavy shade. Spreads slowly by rhizomes to form an attractive groundcover for shade areas. Purple-brown flowers are quite attractive on close inspection, but bloom singly on or near the ground and are usually hidden from view by the foliage. Not related to culinary ginger.
