Asarum caudatum f album


 Asarum caudatum f album, white flower Western wild ginger, is a nice choice if you want a denser evergreen groundcover for a shady woodland garden.    This form has a moderate growth rate and I count on it doubling in spread each season.  The rare white flowers peek out from beneath the dense leaf canopy.   Best grown in a shady location in humous rich, well-drained soil.  Although it is most commonly found in moist forest settings, it is also quite tolerant of low water situations once it is established.   The foliage and root has a spicy smell similar to culinary ginger when crushed.  Hardy to -10 degrees F.  Aristolochiaceae
