Asarum takaoi 'Ginba' is one of the true prizes in the wild ginger world. This old Japanese selection of Asarum takaoi boasts 2" wide, round, solid pewter leaves that overlap to form a tight 2" tall x 8" wide, very slow-growing, dwarf clump. In late winter, the small dark maroon flowers are hidden just below the evergreen foliage...a highly prized specimen for a special place in the woodland garden.
