Saruma henryi

Saruma henryi

Upright Wild Ginger

This woodland beauty was recently introduced from China. It's a relative of the wild ginger, and, indeed, saruma is an anagram of asarum. Velvety, heart-shaped leaves are beautiful. Small yellow flowers emerge from the leaf axils and bloom several months in the spring. Grows to about 2 feet tall. Long-lived and hardy to Zone 5.

Light shade, shade 4" pots $7.00
