(aka: Hexastylis speciosa) We are share one of our favorite native rarities...the easy-to-grow, evergreen Asarum speciosum from our neighbors to the south in Alabama, where it occurs in only three counties. This selection, Asarum speciosum 'Woodlanders Select', was made by Bob McCartney of Woodlanders Nursery as being particularly nice in foliage and flower. The large, arrowhead-shaped, 6" leaves of green are marbled with muted silver patterns. In late spring, the base of the deer-resistant wild ginger clump is adorned with giant silver dollar-sized flowers that look like Lindsay Lohan's bloodshot eyes awakening after a three day drunk. This clonal selection has been propagated by tissue culture to assure uniformity.
