Zingiber 'Twice As Nice basal inflorescence This Zingiber was discovered and introduced to horticulture by pioneer ginger collector Tim Chapman. Tim placed this into tissue culture a few years ago, but somehow it has never really caught on and become a common garden ginger. Tim believes it is a form or the common shampoo ginger (also known as "pine cone ginger") Zingiber zerumbet. It may be, but the resemblance is limited to its scientific characters, because this plant looks entirely different to the casual observer. First of all it is MUCH SHORTER, only topping out at about 2 1/2 feet at maturity. And even more striking is its habit of blooming BOTH basal (as with most Zingiber species) AND TERMINAL! This makes it a really great garden plant, compact enough for the front of a garden bed and showy when it flowers.

Zingiber 'Twice As Nice' is just as easy to grow as the common shampoo ginger, Zingiber zerumbet. It is hardy to zone 8 and has been well tested in Baton Rouge, LA as well as here in Tallahassee.
