Description

Wild Canadian Ginger grows as a woodland perennial in much of North America! It also grows extremely well in a rural garden setting, and makes an excellent ground cover plant! In early spring, lush-green leaves pop up from the ground, quickly followed by small reddish-brown flowers hidden within the foliage. Leaves are wide and heart-shaped, and spread to form a lush carpet of green. This is ideal ground-cover plant below trees or shrubs. Plants are easy to grow, yet never become invasive, as they slowly spread into their tidy clumps. Grow in or shade or part shade and regular soil. 

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 6-8"

Location: or part

Hardiness zones: 3-7

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. First keep them at room temperature for 3-4 weeks. This helps break the phytohormones which inhibit germination.  Then cover them with plastic to retain moisture, and then place in a fridge for 6-8 weeks. Then bring them to a cool room (approximately 12°C, 54°F) for 6-8 weeks. If they are not growing they will need a second cold period, cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for another 6-8 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the second cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool (12-15C, 54-59F) room for them to germinate. This double cold period is not always needed, but sometimes necessary, and is very normal for these seeds. Germination is in 30-90 days after the second warming period, sometimes longer.
