Alpinia zerumbet flowers Alpinia zerumbet is a very common ginger in frost free climates, but it will survive in much colder areas and even bloom if the tips of the plants are not frozen back. It is evergreen down to the upper twenties.

Alpinia zerumbet can grow to be quite tall, up to 8 feet or more. It grows best and flowers best if grown in at least 5 hours direct sun, in rich, moist, organic soil, well drained. Hardiness has been rated as zone 7 in many references, but I have not tested it that cold myself, nor do I know anyone who has. It is probably a safe bet to be root hardy in 7B or 8A but will not bloom in those areas since it only blooms on second year growth.
