Do you see the dark red flower to the right? There is also a bud on the lower stem in the foreground. (Someday with a new, more powerful camera I'll be able to offer you a closer view.) It was truly enthralling to discover these blooms. Oh, and that is a glimpse of rare northeastern sunlight through the wonderfully large heart-shaped leaves. With time, I hope to have a dense mat of these beautifully textured leaves covering the "woodland floor" of this bed.
Wild ginger is attractive to butterflies and is an alternative host plant for the pipevine swallowtail butterfly. I sure do hope a swallowtail accepts this inviting welcome mat in my garden. Maybe yours, too?
