Description

Wild Ginger-Asarum Caudatum -is a Low Growing Perennial Herb

Wild Ginger is Uniquely Attractive and its Frequently used around Shrubs and Trees

 Wild Ginger is a low growing perennial herb that is native to Asia but can be located all throughout North America as well. Its Latin name, Asarum, means altar or sanctuary. Wild Ginger and Ginger root do share some of the same characteristics, such as smell and taste; they are not in the same family. The FDA warns against consumption due to toxic compounds. This species of seed may be slow-moving or reluctant to germinate and reach maturity. For this reason, it is recommended that Wild Ginger be propagated by root, as opposed to seed harvesting. It is best to separate them before they begin to cultivate and develop, or in the fall when they are dormant. Asarum can reach up to 6 to 10 inches high and, depending on the plant's variation, spans around 12 to 24 inches. It should be spaced 6-12 inches apart when planting. Asarum prefers a shaded woodland environment and a medium amount of moisture in the soil. The soil should be more acidic and have a ph. of 6.8-7.2. This would assist in optimum growth and vibrancy. The leaves have a heart shape to them and are reddish-brown. Ginger flowers have an attractive bell shape, and this combination attributes a lovely-atypical appearance, compared to similar woodland plants. Wild Ginger blooms in the spring (April, May, and June) and lies dormant in the autumn. Most gardeners appreciate wild Ginger as it does not compete with surrounding plants and looks nice underneath evergreens. Wild Ginger is uniquely attractive and is frequently used around trees or shrubs. This plant is a significant source of food for the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly, but deer find it unappetizing. This makes for a flourishing wildlife environment without the hassle of deer determent efforts. Asarum appeals to many insects, but the ant, in particular, is believed to cross-fertilize it. This plant contributes greatly to woodland wildlife.
