7 Herbs that Grow in Shade: Wild Ginger
Wild ginger (Asarum canadense; Zones 2-8) is native to the woodlands of North America. An attractive groundcover with heart-shaped leaves, wild ginger also can be used to flavor both sweet and savory dishes. To harvest wild ginger without destroying the perennial, dig about 2 inches into the soil between the plants. Snip off a few inches of the rhizomes, then pat down the soil. You can harvest in this fashion several times a year without decimating your beautiful patch of wild ginger.
