Often called Canadian Ginger, the Native Americans used this perennial herb as a seasoning. Though the roots have similar aromatic properties to true ginger, this plant is not commonly used today for culinary purposes. With small, often overlooked reddish-brown flowers, this woodland wildflower is grown today almost exclusively for it's decorative foliage. It's low-growing, solid, dark covered leaves are a handsome companion for more showy species.
