Asarum speciosum 'Bloodshot Eyes' is a 2020 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of a 2011 collection in Autauga County, Alabama. Not only do the evergreen triangle-shaped green leaves have nice silver patterns and an anise-like fragrance, but the fabulous owl eye-like flowers that appear just below the foliage in mid-May (NC) are amazing and slightly larger and wider open than any other clone we've grown. Asarum speciosum 'Bloodshot Eyes' forms a 10" tall x 18" wide evergreen clump in the woodland garden...very easy to grow in average woodland soils, although some summer heat is required for best performance.
