Marvelous "Black Ginger" with arched stems winged with glossy maroon overlapping leaves; the lovely blossoms open creamy yellow gradually changing to peachy apricot. Wonderful color in any plant combination, or as a solo pot plant. If the roots are slightly chilled, or if (not that this could happen) watering schedules are missed, this small ginger will drop its foliage; but never fear for a new fresh set of stems will emerge from the undersoil bulb/tuber and the color will be better than ever. INQUIRE as to availability before ordering.
|Cultural Code||TGH HP|
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.×
