Wild Ginger

Evergreen, creeping perennial, forming carpets of kidney-shaped, glossy, dark leaves. These conceal small, greenish purple then brown narrowly bell shaped flowers borne in late spring. Ideal as a groundcover.

Native plant nursery by my house says this grows best in partial sun to shade. If your woodlands are being invaded by garlic mustard, get some wild ginger! Wild Ginger's sturdy rootstocks and soft green leaves creep to cover woodland slopes, rocky soils, and any shady area. Once established, it fends off Garlic Mustard, Buckthorn, and other invasives. Plant one foot apart to form a solid cover in two to three years. Hardy to Zones 3 - 8
