We grew up in a garden created by Mary Donnelly, Ernest Clayton’s daughter. A huge ancient buckeye provided shade for camellias and daphne. The understory was of ferns and bleeding heart, violets and wild ginger. Helen Sharsmith (Spring Wildflowers of the San Francisco Bay Region, 1965) says, “The heavy woody rootstocks are aromatic and the crushed leaves exude a similar pungence, hence Wild Ginger...Flowers large, long-lasting, well-hidden among the abundant long-stalked, heart shaped, glossy-green, large and conspicuous leaves. Deep moist soil in dense shade, often carpeting the forest floor.—Eugenia Herr, 2015
