Asarum ichangense 'Silver Lining' is our 2017 introduction of a pre-2001 Darrell Probst collection from 1800' elevation in Huangjinjing, Jinshiqiao, China, where it grew on a shaded river bank among giant patches of Indocalamus bamboo. For us, the stoloniferous, but slowly spreading Asarum ichangense 'Silver Lining' has grown into a lovely 4" tall x 2' wide patch in 15 years. The tardily deciduous Asarum 'Silver Lining' is composed of 3" dark green, heart-shaped leaves, each adorned with large silver swatches. In late winter, look closely at ground level and you'll see the small, pointed-petaled, violet-colored flowers.
