Nature Inspirations: Wild Ginger

My favorite plant in the whole world is Wild Ginger. I first heard of this plant when I was a teen. It was mentioned in passing, and I was briefly curious, but didn’t know enough about it to really follow the curiosity. Next, in a botany class in college, I looked up from my notes to see a brief glimpse of a weird, three-petaled purple-brown flower with leaves that had veins in the shape of a lotus flower.
