We are thrilled to once again offer this Ozzie Johnson selection of the famed Panda Face ginger that was named and introduced by Itsaul Plants of Georgia. Asarum 'Ling Ling' makes a stunning clump of large, glossy, rich green, heart-shaped foliage highlighted by two silvery-green blotches on either side of the central stripe. In late winter, the 1' wide deer-resistant clumps are adorned by basal clusters of 2" round, velvety black flowers, each highlighted by a wide white band around the center. This easy-to-grow wild ginger is truly a showstopper in the garden or in a container for the sun room.
