Origin of asarum
Examples from the Web for asarum
True ginger must not be confounded with "wild ginger," which is a small herbaceous plant (Asarum canadense) of the United States.
The long, slender rhizomes of Asarum have a pungent, aromatic taste similar to ginger.
It also feeds upon wild ginger or Asarum and probably upon other plants.Butterflies Worth Knowing|Clarence M. Weed
