The last post showcased the beautiful woodland phlox, Phlox divaricata, blooming now in gardens throughout the area. On a walk through the garden to show examples of companion plants for the phlox, I spotted the woodland groundcover, Asarum splendens, Asian ginger. Its large, mottled leaves stay evergreen, and in woodland soil it will spread, creating pretty swathes of gray/green patterns…
Shown here it mingles with Japanese painted fern just beginning to emerge with the woodland phlox in the background.
We have a small amount of this ginger available now, and many perennial ferns are in stock too, including the Japanese painted ferns shown here…truly beautiful additions to any garden.
