Japan's Asarum minamitanianum is a virtually impossible-to-find evergreen wild ginger from Kyushu, Japan that is reportedly now extinct in the wild. The pointed heart-shaped leaves are patterned with distinctive silver markings...but wait until you see the indescribably cool flowers in April/May...dark purple, edged in white with three very long moustache-like petals to 4"...a true collector's item! We have found the tightly clumping Asarum minamitanianum very easy to grow in our woodland garden. Once established, dry shade suits Asarum minamitanianum just fine.
