We grew asarum from seed this year and they were amazingly easy.  Harold Holmes has the most experience with this.  We typically don't get good asarum seed set here.

As far a taxonomy goes, everytime the southeast taxonomist try to just the retention of the genus hexastylis, they neglect to look at all of the Asian asarum species....truly bizarre.

Now, if only taxonomists would quit MUCKING with stuff!  Sheesh!  I think taxonomy was invented to employ taxonomists.

I have some Asarum hartwegii that appear to self-sow.
