#2 is the best name I can come up with for this unidentified Asarum. It was given to me some years ago by a local grower and has, since then, struggled along in the garden. If I had known that it produced these spectacular flowers, I'd have given it more attention.
Fortunately, seeing how my friend Erika grew her Asarum 'Green Panda' in a container and realizing how rewarding it was to see the dramatic flowers at eye level, I too have taken all my Asarums out of the garden and now keep them in containers.
Luckily I have a cool greenhouse and that enables me to see these flowering wonders close up and early in the season.
