Re: Chinese ginger

You're right - most sources indicate hardiness of Asarum splendens to Zone
6, but I did find a few that said 5 and even one Zone4.
With the new USDA map waiting in the wings, I have noticed this year several
nurseries bringing in Zone 6 plants to our area that has always been zone 5,
but will be in Z6 on the new map.  They seem to be encouaged by it.  The
nursery I got mine at guarantees its plants for 2 yrs and, although they are
often expensive, they were reasonably priced on A. splendens - especially
the 3 I got at 1/2 price. For only $3, or even $6, I'd be willinging to give
a Z6 plant a try.  But for PDN's price of $15 + shipping, I probably
wouldn't risk it.  For that price, you can order the even nicer A.
shuttleworthii that is always listed as Zone 5.
