Considered a semi-evergreen, Asarum splendens acts more as an evergreen in our mild Portland winters, with new elongated heart-shaped leaves emerging in spring. The dark blue green foliage has streaks and speckles of silver and is an excellent choice to brighten up your woodland landscape. Great for shade, container planting, and where the soil stays more moist than dry. Like most plants, likes good drainage. Flowers emerge in spring, and though many folks may not consider them show stoppers, they have a strange and unique tubular appearance with 3 petals in a purpley brown shade that we find quite eye-catching. Low maintenance, and is capable of smothering weeds due to the thick mats of root formed underneath the soil. An awesome choice for those who appreciate unusual specimens and like a easy-care plant!
