See Spot Run Arrow-leaf Wild Ginger
Item #: 2162

Height: 6" tall
Origin: United States
Asarum arifolium 'See Spot Run' is our second introduction of the rare spreading form of the North American Asarum arifolium. Like its sibling Asarum 'Silver Spreader', Asarum 'See Spot Run' also comes from our 2006 expedition to Clay County, Georgia. Asarum arifolium 'See Spot Run' forms a lovely evergreen groundcover, only about 1/3 slower than its sibling, so expect 7-8 years to have a 6" tall x 2' wide patch. The 3.5" wide and long arrow shaped leaves have more prominent silver blotching than its sibling, but with the same central green stripe and green leaf margin. If you need a reason to peak below the anise-scented foliage in mid-spring, you'll see the small tubular flowers huddled together like suckling pigs.
