Can anyone identify this plant? It was given to me several years ago. It likes shade (I've got it planted under bigger plants which shield it from full sun), spreads underground veeeeeeeery slowly, and from what I was told, is uncommon.

I don't know what it is, but doesn't it's flower look like a mouth? Kind of like a venus fly trap? Maybe you could trap a fly, drop it near the flower and see what happens? I'm joking. There is no way I would want to touch a fly, but if I would touch one, that would be some experiment!

Wild ginger is a great wild flower. It usually grows under the canopy of hardwood trees in forests here in Ontario. You will need to ensure it has some shade to maintain it. If you ever damage branch you will notice that it smells like ginger too.

I've had it for at least five years now. Don't do a thing to it, either Smile You can't really see it in the photo, but there is a VERY large sage bush off to the left. Between it and the day lilies to the right, it gets lots of shade. In fact, for the first few years I almost forgot I had it. It is becoming more robust as it spreads.
