Asarum

Wild Ginger

Stretching out by underground rhizomes, the Wild Gingers are handsome woodland dwellers whose large-leafed, low growing colonies flourish in moist, shady niches. Long petioles elevate their polished, usually heart-shaped foliage while darkly colored, three-lobed blooms add intrigue.

Asarum caudatum f. album partial shade  shade lover

A lover of loose leafy soil, this native of western North America grows in the deep shade of redwood forests and pine woods, spreading its rhizomes to form wide patches of foliage. The 3 petals of the earthy wine-colored flowers end in long tapering wisps under deeply embossed, heart-shaped leaves. Combined with Beesia deltophylla, which is equally shade-loving, the red colors are even more enchanting.

Blooms April – June.

Size: 4"–6" high & spreading; hardy to zone 7.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
