Chinese Wild Ginger is an exotic evergreen groundcover plant reaching about 8 inches tall, and growing to cover an area about 12 to 18 inches across. It has 4-inch leaves shaped like arrow-heads, that are a bluish-green with unique and beautiful silver markings on them. In spring strange, brown and purple flowers hide among the leaves. This rare plant fits perfectly into woodland areas in the shade of trees, among other shade-loving plants like Azaleas or Hostas. Plant it beside a path where it will mingle with other low-growing plants.

  • Beautiful bluish-green foliage with exotic silver markings
  • Low-growing groundcover for woodlands and shady places
  • Strange purple-brown flowers hidden among the leaves in spring
  • Tolerates low light and full shade
  • Slow-growing and long-lived

Partial-shade is ideal for Chinese Wild Ginger, which will also grow in light full shade. It is evergreen from zone 6 and it can be grown in zone 5 under a thick winter mulch of leaves. It grows best in moist, well-drained soil rich in rotted leaves and other organic material, and it needs absolutely no care at all – just admiration. It is generally free of pests or diseases, although slugs may be an occasional problem.
