Wild ginger is a low growing plant with heart-shaped to kidney-shaped leaves. A great way to incorporate wild ginger into your garden would be as a ground cover, or in a rain garden. Tolerates deep shade and erosion, as well as being deer resistant. Its maroon colored flowers aren’t easily seen, because of their placement beneath the foliage.
