Item added to cart!

Wild Ginger is a shade loving native herbaceous perennial grown as a groundcover for its nearly stemless, downy heart shaped dark green foliage.  The flowers are insignificant and hidden below the foliage.  Grows best with heavy shade and consistently moist well-drained acidic soils.  

Wild Ginger has various medicinal uses.  The roots can be used for chronic chest complaints, coughs, asthma, and stomach spasms.  Fresh leaves can be used on wounds or inflammations, and a salve can be made for sores.*
