Tropical Gingers
Exotic Flowering and Colorful Gingers

Tropical Gingers have the ability to evoke the mystery and texture of the deep tropics even in subtropical climates. Apart from palm trees, gingers are what people think of most when when asked to imagine tropical plants or tropical foliage.

There are nearly 1400 different gingers and many of them hardy. The heady fragrance of Hedychiums and the lush foliage of some Alpinias are attainable outdoors even as far north as USDA zone 7 and further north with protection and diligence.

The further south one travels the more choices one has in the tropical gingers to cultivate. Some Globbas are hardy in Zone 8 as are many Curcumas and some Zingibers. If you want to get really exotic go for the Costus and Etlingeras in Zones 9 and 10.

Tropical Gingers are varied enough that most gardeners can find a spot for one in their garden. That shady rocky spot in your garden might be home to a Kaemfperia or two. Take advantage of the variety and enjoy them now.

Note: During November through April, any Gingers sold may be provided as rhizomes. Many Gingers will go dormant in the winter regardless of climate. Some Gingers do not go dormant.  Rhizomes, supplied instead of growing plants, meet our stringent requirements to provide exemplary specimens.
