One of my friends in Michigan just found something interesting the other week.  A nursery there is selling seed grown Asarum europeum...only the plants they are selling are obvious hybrids with Asarum canadense.  Who knew?

And I can confirm they spread like crazy by seed - without my intervention!

I have a patch of this in my garden.  It has spread nicely over the years.
And today I was looking for evidence of seed pods in hopes of donating them
to the PBS BX but I can't find anything.  Am I too late?  Or is it feasible
that my colony is all one self-sterile clone?
