Asarum europaeum


European Wild Ginger

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.079.500


This is a first-rate groundcover plant for shady areas, much sought after by gardeners, and seldom in good supply. It will slowly form a solid patch of glossy, dark green rounded leaves, which remain evergreen in mild winter regions. Brownish flowers are insignificant, hiding underneath the foliage. Use this in small areas, since the plants take a few years to establish. Combines well with miniature Hosta, primroses and low-growing ferns. Once established, the plants will self-seed sparingly.
