Asarums - The Wild Gingers
 

A wonderful genus, excellent as a woodland ground cover.  Some have lovely deep green glossy leaves and others have splendid variegations rivalling the best Cyclamen.  Each and every year I become more and more fond of these intriguing plants. These plants are slow to moderate growers with fleshy roots that take a year or so to settle in.  In fact, if heavily disturbed plants often sit dormant until the next growing season.  However, once established they make splendid mounds of spreading foliage that is so variable from species to species it makes you appreciate the diversity of life.
