Ginger has exceptional leafy foliage (some scented) and exotic-smelling flowers. Some varieties like 'Pinstripe', 'Zerumbet Variegated' and 'Amazonicus Variegated' have colorful variegated foliage, making them dramatic plants in the garden. Depending on the variety, the plant can grow to eight feet tall. Use in containers or plant in masses in full sun to part shade. Hardy to USDA Zone 8.
