When I first bought a rhizome of this plant several years ago from a shipment from Thailand, it was simply labeled "palm ginger" and I did not even know what genus it was. As it grew I could see it had the distinctive look of a Zingiber species, but still did not know anything else about it. Finally I found the right place for it and it burst forth with beautiful blooms to complement the arching palm-like foliage. It is now one of my favorite gingers. The foliage is graceful but tropical, growing to about 5 ft. tall and arching. The inflorescence shoots appear well above ground level with fuzzy green bracts and creamy yellow flowers.

It is one of the deciduous species of the genus Zingiber, thus making it potentially hardy throughout zone 8. I have grown it here in zone 8B Tallahassee for several years and found that it is not especially difficult - not as prone to rotting of the rhizomes as Z. collinsii and others. I have found that it grows best in light shade, well drained, but regularly moist soil.
