This species will form a handsome 6″-deep carpet of glossy, dark green, kidney-shaped leaves measuring 4″ across. It offers the perfect setting for the bright spring blooms of Dicentra and Tiarella. Wild Gingers are among the great foliage plants for shade. Their shapely leaves come in a variety of rich greens. Some are shiny, others have exquisite texture, and a few carry striking silvery patterns. It throws out dark purple flowers in March and April. All Wild Gingers love rich, slightly acid, organic soil with plenty of moisture, under which conditions most will spread to form distinctive ground covers of varying density. The curious, bell-shaped flowers are insignificant.
The plant has emetic, diuretic, laxative, emmenagogue, stimulant, sudorific and tonic properties. It is administered in the form of herbal tea for the treatment of bronchitis, pneumonia, whooping cough, diarrhea, sciatica and headaches.
