Family: Zingiberaceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH CGH what's this?

Used in China for treating infections; here for the strikingly beautiful dark leathery slim leaves striped and slashed with rich yellow. This "Variegated Shell Ginger" constitutes a very handsome evergreen gradually clumping plant tolerating adverse house conditions--where, unlike its Zingiber cousins, the foliage is maintained year round. Certainly one of the most dramatic Gingers for decorative impact in your house or patio displays. Excellent choice for adding dramatic slashes of gold to your container designs for the summer, especially as mature stalks end with weeping pendant clusters of shell pink blossoms.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
