Using ecology to restore land and water
Wild Ginger is a low growing woodland plant that blankets areas in a show of attractive heart shaped leaves that persist throughout the season. The plants produce red-brown flowers that grow low to the ground and are usually hidden below the leaves. The flowers are pollinated by beetles, flies, and ants. The rhizomes have an aromatic scent reminiscent of the tropical true ginger. Wild ginger thrives in shady woodland conditions and makes an excellent ground cover in home landscaping.
