- They're not visible because the plant sends them out under the leaf litter. The flowers bloom from april through june, with tapered tips and bases fused into a cup. The second giveaway is the flowers. The wild gingers are noted for being vigorous groundcovers that spread by rhizomes, or underground root structures.
Pollinated flowers develop into a pod, and have three sepals, tan to purple on the outside and lighter inside, which splits open when ripe to reveal seeds with elaiosomes, are hairy, structures that are eaten by ants. Ginger plants in the wild spread via rhizomes and can be easily divided in the early spring by slicing through the surface growing rhizomes.
Their heart-shaped leaves grow on 4 to 12 inch-long stems that rise in pairs from the rhizome. Early european settlers used to dry the rootstalk, however, grind it to a powder and use it as a spice.
Caring for wild ginger requires full to partial shade, as the plant will burn in full sun. The plants are low-growing, and the leaves are very vaguely similar, but coltsfoot leaves are in no way heart-shaped. Most of the wild gingers grow 6 to 10 inches tall and spread 12 to 24 inches wide, depending on the species. Wild ginger prefers acidic, well-drained yet moist soil for lush plants. Wild ginger is also known as colic root, it is named wild ginger because of the similar taste and smell of the roots.
