plantphotos/Alpinia galanga flowers in a vase Alpinia galanga is mainly used in Thai cooking to add a spicy kick to this famous cuisine. There is a great website with lots of information about all kinds of spices at Gernot Katzer's Spice Pages.

As an ornamental, Alpinia galanga is not very flashy, but it is the only Alpinia that will bloom reliably on first year growth. That's the good news - the bad news is that the flowers are not very showy when the foliage has frozen back. But I think you will agree, these pictures (from my own garden after a mild winter) show just how under appreciated this plant's potential is as an ornamental garden plant.

Alpinia galanga is easy to grow in moist, rich, organic soil in part sun. The tropical foliage grows to about 6 feet tall and it is hardy in zone 8.
