Asarum arifolium (Arrowhead Ginger)
This eastern Kentucky native, low growing plant is similar to the other gingers but instead of the common round leaf it has a pronounced arrowhead shape to the leaf. Evergreen but during the winter a nice purple hue may develop if cold enough. Small flowers appear in early spring at ground level and although not big and showy it is always fun to lift up the leaves and take a look at such unusual blooms! Another common name for his plant is Little Brown Jug. It gets this name because the flowers are brown and (you guessed it) look like little brown jugs with small openings!
