Wild Ginger - Asarum

Wild ginger is a beautiful and versatile groundcover perennial that can be a valuable addition to landscaping. Here are some of its attributes and benefits when used in landscaping:

This plant ships bare-root and dormant (no leaves or foliage) It will not green out until next spring.

  • Evergreen Ground Cover: Asarum species are often used as evergreen ground covers due to their low-growing, dense foliage. They form a lush carpet-like effect, making them ideal for filling gaps between larger plants or shaded areas.
  • Shade Tolerance: It thrives in shaded or filtered shaded areas, making it an excellent choice for landscapes with limited sunlight or under the canopy of larger trees.
  • Low Maintenance: Once established, it requires minimal maintenance, making it a convenient choice for gardeners who prefer low-maintenance landscaping.
  • Erosion Control: The dense growth habit of wild ginger helps control soil erosion on slopes or in areas prone to erosion.

Wild Ginger's heart-shaped or kidney-shaped leaves are often glossy and have a beautiful deep green color

  • Attractive Foliage: Some species may have variegated or mottled foliage, adding visual interest to the landscape.
  • Deer and Rabbit Resistant: Often considered deer and rabbit resistant, which can be beneficial in areas with high populations of these animals
  • Pollinator Friendly: Inconspicuous flowers near ground level for ants to pollinate. These flowers may attract some tiny pollinators, contributing to the overall biodiversity of your landscape.
  • Native Plant: In some regions, it may be native, making it an ecologically beneficial choice for landscaping, as it can support local wildlife and contribute to the preservation of native species.
  • Companion Planting: This plant can complement other shade-loving plants in a landscape design, providing a visually appealing contrast with its unique foliage.

Bare root plants

Bare root plants, that's what I got. They've been planted and tended to, as directed since I received them a couple weeks ago.

I'll check back in a year.
