Splendid indeed! Asarum splendens is a vigorous and superbly easy-to-grow Chinese wild ginger that makes a great evergreen groundcover for the woodland garden. The large, dark green, deer-resistant leaves (evergreen to 10 degrees F) are heavily adorned with silvery mottling throughout. Asarum splendens is a vigorously rhizomatous species, spreading underground to 6' wide in 10 years. In early spring, you will also love this one for the large 2" flowers of dark purple...one of the finest members of the ginger family. Our original stock came from China, via both Jim Waddick and Barry Yinger.
