European Ginger (Asarum arifolium) 

European Ginger: Asarum arifolium, previously Hexastylis arifolia, is the standard European ginger. Despite its reference to Europe, this evergreen species is a native North American perennial that originated in the humid forests of the southeast.

Besides European Ginger, here are a few additional common names for this adorable evergreen plant:

  • Arrowhead Wild Ginger
  • Heartleaf Ginger
  • Heartleaf Wild Ginger
  • Little Brown Jugs
  • Green Valentine 

TN Nursery recommends this plant in the mid-south and midwest's moderate planting zones.

European Ginger Is an Excellent Shade Garden Ground Cover 

Finding the best plants for a shade garden can be challenging--European Ginger is one pretty perennial that flourishes in the deepest shade. 

It loves moist soil that drains well. It is happiest when it beds down in plenty of organic material. When you plant European ginger, add a generous scoop of mulch, grass clippings, peat moss, or shredded leaves. It loves these materials. 

The Lovely Green Foliage Makes European Ginger a Popular Choice 

European Ginger is a favorite of TN Nursery customers who need to add profuse greenery to a shady spot. 

The foliage is impressive. Each leaf can measure as much as six inches long and wide. Some gardeners describe the shape of the leaf as a blunt, rounded arrowhead. But others explain that it makes an abstract heart shape. The leaves have veins that create a crackled or leathery appearance. 

The plant produces tiny, light burgundy to brown, jug-shaped flowers with a soft, peach fuzz texture. However, these are fairy blossoms--so small that the many leaves tend to conceal them.

During the middle to end of summer, European Ginger will produce tiny berries. They are inedible to humans, but your backyard birds will enjoy harvesting them.
