Asarum europaeum (European Ginger)is not a flashy plant, but it always holds its own in the garden. Unlike American wild ginger, European ginger has glossy, shiny leaves. It grows as a low, slow creeping ground cover that sweeps around other plants, catches the light and reflects it up. The leaves are so shiny, everyone wants to reach down and touch it.
