(Mature Size: 6"T x 15"W)
(Asarum europaeum) Excellent ground cover that forms a dense mound of very shiny green leaves that are evergreen in warmer climates.
European Ginger can adapt to multiple growing conditions. Here in the north it seems perfectly happy in sun and shade. Prefers shade in the hot southern states.
Will naturalize itself as it does spread by seed but is not invasive. Actually kind of cool that it pops up here and there once naturalized.
The glossy green leaves look nice with blue and gold hostas and the silvery painted ferns.
We have a bunch of them that seeded in holes in stone walls which is really attractive but we didn't plan it.
Plant a few of them in your gardens then enjoy them for a long time!
Virtually no pests or disease problems with this beauty.
Burgundy flowers in late spring are borne under the leaves and often not seen, but this ginger is grown for it's intense leaf color.
