This strain is kept in short production runs in tissue culture in order to keep true to form with a uniform growth habit and appearance. Compacta has pinnae (leaflets) that are wavy and full with shorter fronds to give it a more compact presentation suitable for 4-6 inch pots and hanging baskets. n/a   n/a 15"-18" 12"-15" 11-12 10" Hanging Basket

Ginger (Canadian Wild) Asarum canadense
5. Canadian Wild Ginger
A highly popular groundcover, Wild Ginger's large heart-shaped leaves can be 6" in diameter, and its sturdy rootstocks create a dense network that creeps to cover woodland slopes.

As a woodland native this deer resistant plant enjoys shade and tolerates a variety of soil types. An attractive dark red flower, usually hidden from view by the foliage, blooms in early spring and fades fairly quickly. 11C-South Click to display 'Canadian Wild Ginger' tag image 6"-12" 6"-12" 4-6 8" Green

Sedge (Creeping broad-leaf) Carex siderosticha
47. Banana Boat

The one inch wide leaves are bright lemon or banana yellow with narrow, green margins and stripes.This is an outstanding accent plant for brightening up shady gardens or pathways and is also striking in containers. Native to mountain woodlands, 'Banana Boat' slowly creeps by rhizomes to form a dense mass of bold-textured foliage. It is a long-lived, durable sedge for the woodland garden. 12C-North Click to display 'Banana Boat' tag image n/a 6"-12" 12"-15" 5-9 8" Terra Cotta
Sedge (Creeping Broad-leaved)
48. Snow Cap
'Snow Cap' has nearly all-cream to bright white, wide, strappy leaves with narrow green stripes. The striking variegation is much whiter than ‘Variegata’ but grows surprisingly well for a plant with so little green. It forms a dense, slowly spreading clump of deciduous, deer resistant foliage and has insignificant flowers.

This selection easily complements many other shade perennials such as hostas, ferns, and heartleaf brunnera, brightening up containers and gardens with its light colored foliage.
