Asarum splendens

Chinese Wild Ginger
Chinese Wild Ginger isa quite attractive groundcover for a sheltered shady spot. Evergreen in mild winter areas, the forest green arrow shaped leaves are traced with a wonderful silver mottling. In early spring, 2" black purple flowers surprise you although you do have to peer under the foliage to find them. Plants grow 6-8" tall and 12-15" wide.
