Asarum (Wild Ginger)

Wild Ginger are herbaceous to evergreen perennials with a perennial rootstock from humus rich soils in open spots in woods throughout the northern hemisphere. Despite their common name they belong to the birthwort family (Aristolochiaceae). All have kidney-shaped leaves and basal, short-stemmed, brownish to dark yellowish flowers. They are good ground cover plants and suit for any rich, well drained, slightly moist soils in partial shade to full sun.
Sow flat from autumn to late spring in any well drained, yet humus rich soil. Keep pots outside in a sunny and protected spot. Transplant rhizomes in autumn after most leaves have withered.
Note: All parts are poisonous if ingested !
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
