We are pleased to offer this vegetatively-propagated selection of the durable Asian ginger, Asarum fauriei var. takaoi. Asarum 'Roundabout' is a slow spreader that forms a 2' wide evergreen patch in 5 years. The medium green, 2" rounded leaves are adorned with small dollops of silver. Each patch is highlighted in late winter with small, three-petaled, flesh-colored flowers that are hidden at the leaf axils. This is truly a superb selection for the woodland garden...both as a specimen and in a mass planting.
