Attractive, low-growing ground cover suited for shaded areas. Grows to about half a foot tall with 6-inch diameter, heart shaped leaves. Unlike many spring understory plants, wild ginger will keep its foliage throughout the season. A dark red-purple flower appears under the plant for a short period in early spring.

Native American tribes used wild ginger as a seasoning or to treat colds and fevers. European settlers used the root as a ginger substitute. Leaves may cause some skin irritation, so wear gloves.
