This selection of the East Coast native, A. minor, is one we collected on a plant rescue in Wake Co., NC. The very dark green, heart-shaped leaves are highlighted by dramatic silver patterning. In late spring, the 8" wide evergreen clumps are adorned with amazing maroon and white marked flowers produced beneath the leaves. For dry shade, few plants are better than asarums.
