For those of us who like ginger for a flavoring now and then. I don't know about you folks up North, but here in the South, ginger, or a native variety of it, grows wild. It grows on the sides of hills, where there is at least partial shade, although here in the N. W. corner of Arkansas, it is mostly in the shade. This is an actual ginger, however, it is very skinny compared to what you get from the store, and is just a bit stronger in flaver when fresh. When dried, it isn't a lot different from the store-bought stuff. It grows in colonies, and can cover a huge section of the hill-side forest floor. It is easily identified; Very low-growing, a round leaf with a large indentation on one side, where the stem is located. To make sure you don't identify the wrong plant, check for a picture in any wild herb book, or online. This is great stuff, and really inexpensive!
