Ginger goes everywhere. I cant imagine how it migrates.I have never seen a bloom that would allow seed dispersal.

This kind.Its impossible to kill. I transplanted 2 big clumps in our mild January. Nothing phased them.

JoAnn ,
yours looks like the European wild ginger ( Asarum europaeum)
and LeeAnne's looks like the native wild Canadian ( Asarun canadense)
These type of gingers Mostly spread from underground rhizomes.
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

Looks like it would make a beautiful groundcover! A plant is only a weed if it's growing where you don't want it.
