Colorful Garden Focal Point
The Variegated Ginger has upright growing leaves that are 2 foot long and 6 inches wide. This plant also has waxy lances of deep green with irregular yellow stripes and a distinctive spicy fragrance.
Variegated Ginger is usually grown for its foliage since flowers rarely appear except on old growth in frost free areas. When they do appear, they resemble delicate, tiny pink and white seashells that grow in long arching clusters.
This plant is non-aggressive. It makes a good container plant and can be grown indoors in a bright spot and humid conditions.
It is easy to grow in moist, well-drained soil. The eye-catching foliage can be a focal point in your garden, or plant it in the backdrop to accent smaller, more colorful plants.
