A pretty, fast growing deciduous perennial, this small ginger produces leafy shoots in spring to about 60 cm (2 ft.) tall with a very attractive, terminal inflorescence of red bracts and yellow flowers. Native to the Himalayas to 2400 m to southern central China, it is one of the hardiest gingers. It is best suited for temperate zones, does not require much warmth to grow and its underground rhizomes can survive even harsh winters if well mulched.

    Wild Ginger seeds require at least 3 weeks of cold stratification before they will germinate, so they should be planted in the garden in late winter, up until a month before the last hard frost.

    Wild Ginger plants should be grown in a site with light to deep shade, but they will appreciate a little morning sun. Asarums are sometimes capable to live in poor, dry soil but the result will be very unsatisfactory. For Gingers to thrive, they should be planted in moist, humus rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil.

    Add plenty of compost and fallen conifer needles (if available) to the soil at planting time. Water regularly, and thoroughly, to keep the soil evenly moist, especially if growing Wild Ginger in planters.

    The only feeding that your Wild Ginger will need is an annual top-dressing of compost in the spring.
