Wild ginger Seeds ,Other common names include Woodland Ginger, Ginger Root, Heart Snakeroot, Indian Ginger, Asarabaca, and Catfoot.
Wild ginger is an easy to grow, vigorous groundcover for part fo full shade. It features beautiful, heart-shaped leaves. In the springtime, you'll find interesting, mauve-purple flowers hidden beneath its lush foliage.Often called Canadian Ginger, the Native Americans used this perennial herb as a seasoning. Though the roots have similar aromatic properties to true ginger, this plant is not commonly used today for culinary purposes. With small, often overlooked reddish-brown flowers, this woodland wildflower is grown today almost exclusively for it's decorative foliage. It's low-growing, solid, dark covered leaves are a handsome companion for more showy species.

Best known for its use as an attractive, low-growing ground cover in a shaded woodland setting, Wild Ginger is also deer-resistant. It enjoys shaded, moist, somewhat acidic soils and will grow 6" in height and the large heart-shaped leaves can be 6" in
diameter. The leaves are shiny when fully opened and the stems are hairy. Unlike many early spring woodland plants, Wild Ginger will keep its foliage throughout the season; it will not go dormant so it is a good species to plant among the spring ephemerals that do go dormant. An attractive dark red flower will appear under the plant early spring but will fade fairly quickly.Although unpalatable to deer and other mammals, it is an important food source for the Pipevine swallowtail Butterfly. Many insects are attracted to Wild Ginger, including ants, believed to pollinate the plant. Many Native American Indian tribes used the root of the Wild Ginger plant as a seasoning or to treat colds and fevers. European Settlers to this continent also learned to use the root as a flavor substitute to the tropical ginger they were used to. Other common names include Woodland Ginger, Ginger Root, Heart Snakeroot, Indian Ginger, Asarabaca, and Catfoot.
