Asarum ichangense is a virtually uncultivated Chinese wild ginger that hails from stream side forests and grasslands up to 4,500' elevation in the Chinese provinces of Anhui, Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Hubei, Hunan, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang. In the garden, Asarum ichangense makes a lovely semi-evergreen, slowly-spreading patch. The clusters of small brown flowers perch attractively at the base of the green heart-shaped foliage, opening in mid-February (NC).
