European Ginger Plant 5 For $14.99 Description

European Ginger Plant (Little Brown Jug)

European Ginger - Hexastylis arifolia - is excellent as a native, perennial ground cover owing to its unique form and mottled green color that stands out against the brown hues of the falling dead tree leaves. 

Native to the eastern woods of North America, this evergreen plant grows in wet deciduous forests across South Carolina. Rich foliage consisting of arrow-shaped leaves and comparable growth habits to that of the European wild ginger characterize this species.

Among this species, there is a great deal of variation in the color of the leaves. Depending on the variety, the leaves might feature specks of silver or be utterly dark green.

The plant is most prevalent in forests and other woodland habitats. Due to its ginger-like flavor, you can utilize its roots as a flavoring agent; however, it is still not as intense as the cultivated varieties.

Arrowleaf Ginger's natural growth conditions include woodland areas, although the plant may also thrive in partial sun and dappled shade 

It is adaptive to a wide range of hardiness zones, is simple to grow, and is pest-free. A slight licorice or anise scent emanates from this plant's arrow-shaped, vibrant green leaves. In the spring, tiny purple blooms almost the size of quarters appear deep beneath the leaves.

As a result of their low-growing nature, they form excellent ground covers and are excellent collaborators with ferns, pachysandra, sumac, and dwarf iris. This plant's spreading tendency makes it ideal for bulk plantings and naturalizing broad areas. Any garden displaying this plant becomes a sight to behold.

This plant's natural growth conditions include woodland areas, although the plant may also thrive in partial sun and dappled shade. Flies and wasps are responsible for pollinating the blossoms in the forest, while ants disperse the seeds, which ripen in the middle to late summer.

New plants may start growing inside pots through these seeds, with just a thin layer of soil covering the bottom of the container. Germination will mostly occur once you move the pots outdoors, bury them in the ground, and keep them outside during winter. This plant is low-maintenance and thrives in humus-rich soil.

They spread because they possess a sluggish development rate and need a long time to reach their full potential. Place them at least 12 to 24 inches away to make a carpet of greenery around the area. They are spread through rhizomes, underground stems that develop adjacent to the soil surface.

When dividing rhizomes, the optimum time is in the spring, when you can use a sharp knife to separate them. This plant will usually appear its most acceptable if it receives appropriate moisture to keep it from drying out and more leaf mold in the autumn. The plants also have the advantage of seeming rabbit and deer-resistant, which is a nice bonus.
