Asarum asperum is an evergreen perennial herb inhabiting forest beds in mountainous regions. Leaves are orbicular-ovate to oval-oblong, 6-8cm in length, with tips obtuse, and bases are heart-shaped and can expand on either side in a pair of ears way. Many of the leaves have cloud patterns on the surfaces. Flowers, light red-purple or dark purple, bloom on the ground, often in leaf molds or beneath fallen leaves.
