Native Plants Series: Wild Ginger

Wild ginger (Asarum canadense) may not be a plant you are too familiar with. It makes a great groundcover for shady areas. Large, heart-shaped leaves stay below 6" tall. They hide the dark burgundy flowers which form at the base of the plant in late spring. They get pollinated by ants and beetles. This is another great plant for your moist acidic soils. It is also resistant to both deer and rabbits.
