‘Shell Ginger’


Botanical Name: Alpinia zerumbet

Common Name: Shell Ginger

Origin: East Asia

Height: 5-9′

Comments: A great green foliage plant, this sturdy ginger makes a nice back drop of green for any landscape. Use it as a screen, or as a large clumping specimen. Shell ginger will bloom in areas with mild winters, but will likely grow shorter in areas where they die back to the ground. Flowers are pendant, in pink and white.
