Asarum fauriei var. takaoi 'Ginba' is one of the plant collectors' prizes in the wild ginger world. This classic selection of Japanese Asarum fauriei var. takaoi boasts 2" wide, round, solid pewter leaves that overlap to form a tight 2" tall x 8" wide, very slow-growing, dwarf clump. In late winter, the small dark maroon flowers are hidden just below the evergreen foliage...a highly prized specimen for a special place in the woodland garden.
