Asarum canadense (Canada Wild Ginger) [20 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because germination can be very slow and irregular, and they require patience. I have not sown them myself but just let my plants self-sow. I suggest sowing them outdoors, about 1/8″ deep, as soon as you receive them, in a pot or in a holding bed. They should germinate next spring but may take an additional year.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Canada wild ginger (Asarum canadense) is an eastern American native perennial with broad, roughly heart-shaped, deciduous leaves all through the growing season and curiously shaped, deep purple-brown spring blooms that are hidden by the foliage. It spreads by rhizomes, as well as self-sowing, to form a handsome, deer-resistant groundcover for partial to full shade. Height is usually around 6 to 8 inches. Reportedly hardy in Zones 3 or 4 to 7.

I gathered these seeds on June 10, 2021. They have been mixed with a bit of moistened vermiculite and stored at room temperature since then. Each packet will contain at least 15 seeds (as well as some of the vermiculite).
