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.
2022-collected seeds sold out. I hope to collect again in early June 2023. These seeds have been mixed with a bit of moistened vermiculite and stored at room temperature since harvest. Each packet will contain at least 20 seeds (as well as some of the vermiculite). Ecotype unknown.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
