Description

Asarum splendens Wild Ginger is a low-growing, rhizomatous ground cover with beautiful, glossy green leaves heavily mottled with silver. In spring, dark purple flowers peek out shyly from the foliage.

A semi-evergreen, Asarum splendens Wild Ginger puts out new growth in spring and will die back in cold winters. It is native to China and thrives in part to full shade and moist, well-draining soil. It is deer and rabbit resistant.

Asarum splendens Wild Ginger is a great choice for a low-maintenance, high-coverage groundcover for shade.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
