There's ginseng, and then there's ginseng.

I've known people to get excited by finding a patch of these ginseng flowers. Wow, I bet that bunch is worth a lot! No. The little round tubers of dwarf ginseng haven't caught anyone's imagination. A spring patch in bloom is a pretty sight - much more so than their valued cousin. But that's their only virtue. Don't dig them up.
