Asarum maximum 'Ling Ling' (Panda Face Wild Ginger)
A collector's special and conversation piece for the shade garden. Huge leaves (for an Asarum, anyway) to 8" across are dark, leathery green with prominent silver markings above. Flowers are huge, black and white "panda faces" that are held below the spring foliage. The Louisville area is getting into the colder limits of this plant so a protected area is recommended. Any area inside the Watterson Expressway shouldn't have any trouble at all.
