Description

Asarum europaeum, commonly known as asarabacca, European wild ginger, hazelwort, and wild spikenard, is native to large parts of temperate Europe, and also cultivated in gardens. It is a creeping evergreen perennial with glossy green, kidney shaped leaves and solitary purple flowers hidden by the leaves. It occurs mostly in deciduous woodland or coniferous forests, especially in calcareous (chalky) soils.

A. europaeum is quite shade-tolerant and is often employed as groundcover where little else will grow. This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.

Rare and limited supply.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 4-7

Height: 10-15 cm, 4-6"

Location: Shade or part shade

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

Seeds per pack: 10

Availability: These seeds are available for a very limited time. If these seeds are showing out of stock, we strongly recommend joining our wait list, as these seeds have a very shorty viability window (so we don't offer them for very long) and this helps ensure you get the freshest seeds possible! If they are available, they will only be available for a short time.

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
