Evergreen Wild Ginger -Hexastylis arifolia

Evergreen wild ginger, Hexastylis arifolia, is a beautiful perennial plant that grows slowly to present a shining green garden all year long if the winters in your area are not harsh. It grows well in various types of soil. However, it is better if the soil is slightly acidic rather than alkaline. The wild ginger grows best in shade, but if the weather in the area is cool it can manage sunlight just fine. 
evergreen wild ginger is known by its leaves rather than by its flowers. Its leaves are a dark, rich green color that does not fade when a mild winter comes. it is an evergreen plant. 
The shape of the shining leaves is similar to that of a kidney and can be anywhere from three to four inches across. Because of their size and tendency to spread, this plant makes the perfect ground cover for shady areas. The stalks are about five inches long. This makes for an extra thick, beautiful garden plant as well. 

The evergreen wild ginger is not generally plagued by disease or pests, but it does attract lovely butterflies of various species to your garden for you to enjoy.

It is easy to care for and usually spreads by gradual self-seeding. You can further propagate the spreading of this plant by division when spring comes around. It is hardy in zones 4-8.
Its small, brown flowers are very inconspicuous. In fact, they can scarcely be seen, because they grow beneath the leaves at the base of the stem. This plant is enjoyed for its leaves rather than for its flowers.

    I only got two good ones. The other two were significantly less than and one of these was pitiful looking. I wasn't going to give a bad review until I could see if the bad looking ones would grow. So, if they do grow I'll come back and give a better review.
