Asarum

(Aristolochiaceae - birthwort family)
Wild ginger. About 60 species of perennial woodland herbs. They are forest plants, and require moist, rich soil and partial shade. The types listed here have all shown the ability to tolerate periods of drought. The unusual but inconspicuous flowers are borne near the ground in spring. All spread slowly to form dense colonies, and make fine ground covers where conditions are suitable.

Bears large, heart-shaped, dark green leaves. Spreads slowly, forming a solid cover. The creeping rhizome has a ginger-like odor and flavor, and has been used as a substitute for that spice.
