Wild Ginger

SKU: AM014335
per Plant - 3" Pot
No longer available this season.
Wild Ginger’s large, heart-shaped leaves create a solid, low-growing carpet of dark green beauty on the forest floor. The flowers are curious, nodding under the leaves with three deep red triangular petals. Happiest in full to part shade, use this woodland native to suppress weeds and prevent soil erosion. Not related to the culinary spice. (Asarum canadense)
