This is an excellent ginger for those who would like their ginger to taste a little more mild than usual.
A great under tree plant that will tolerate full sun but will comfortably settle with considerable shade as well.
With its two coloured leaves, it is a bit of a fashion statement in the garden.
The only element it does not react well to is strong wind.
It is not too demanding of water and does not take a lot of looking after, apart from cutting back periodically, as a tidy-up.
All parts of the plant are edible and are generally mild ginger in taste.
The berries, seed and tips can be dried to supply a lovely red herbal tea, that has a pleasant ginger aftertaste.
Seeds are easily struck as long as you plant them and leave them alone, as they do not respond well to fussing.
