  • European Ginger is not a true ginger, and is not to be eaten. It gets its name from the faint ginger scent of its roots
  • Recipient of the prestigious ‘Award of Garden Merit’ of the Royal Horticultural Society
  • A part shade to full shade lover, it is best grown in humusy, slightly acidic, moist; well-drained soils
  • This makes a great ground cover for shady areas of woodland gardens, rock gardens and is perfect for edging, underplanting shrubs or banks and slopes
  • Deer resistant and attracts butterflies.
  • Virtually pest-free and disease free but watch for slugs and snails which could damage the attractive foliage
