Asarum canadense (Wild Ginger)
Native to the entire state of Kentucky this little woodland plant stands about 3-5" tall that covers over the small flowers that are at ground level. It isn't one of those big, cool, and showy flowers you can see from across the garden but bending down each spring to take a look at them is a gardening must. We have planted these in our incredibly difficult to grow about anything area underneath the American Beeches at Yew Dell. The first two years in this inhospitable dry area has proven to still make them happy. They have stayed green all summer and begun to create a great ground cover.
