Blue Ginger The so-called "blue ginger" is not really a ginger at all - it is in the spiderwort family along with "wandering joo" (spelling intentional) and several other not-so-desirable plants. This one though, deserves to carry the name ginger - it is absolutely gorgeous. I had a hard time limiting myself to just 3 photos on this listing. The true blue flowers also look good in front of my light blue house.

Blue ginger grows in part shade in moist, well drained soil. I have seen as much as 8 feet tall in frost free areas, but normally it will only grow to about 4-5 feet tall, at least in areas where it freezes back. It grows large round root tubers at the ends of the roots which allows it to survive during dormancy. I have seen several different hardiness ratings ranging from zone 7 to only zone 9. I can attest to the fact that it is perfectly hardy here in zone 8B and I believe it would be a safe bet in all but the coldest parts of zone 8.
