Also called Canadian Wild Ginger, is quite common native ground covering perennial, that grows in most of the eastern half of USA and Canada.
This is deciduous plant, so the leaves dissapears with late fall and emerge early in spring, but it doesn't change the highly competitive ground covering habit.
0.5' tall x 1.5 wide and slowly spreading into wide clumps. Flower are insignificant, brown-red (April/May) and usually hidden under the leaves.
Half shade, full shade, average soils, or drained soils with medium moisture to medium-dry soils. It will appreciate some leafy-mulch. Tolerates some shorter term droughts, but also wet soils. Hardy in zones 4 to 8. Deer and rabbit resistant plant, black walnut tolerant perennial.
Attracts flies or beetles, wchich are the pollinators, ants eat the fleshy part of the seeds and carry to spread wild ginger to new location.
Nice sprouting with swirled heart-shape leaves, very good groundcover for shady bed, edges, woodland gardens, woodland edges or naturaliziation.
