Kaempferia 'Satin Checks' - Peacock Ginger Kaempferias are known as "peacock gingers" and are often mentioned as Hosta substitutes for the deep South. Kaempferia 'Satin Checks' is one peacock ginger that really lives up to that promise. It increases well to make a striking groundcover in the shade. The little phlox-type flowers are an added bonus. Height is about 8-10 inches.

It is root hardy to zone 8, but like Curcumas and Globbas, it will go dormant in the winter, even in tropical areas. In colder areas than zone 8, the rhizomes can be lifted and stored nearly dry through the winter, then planted back outside in the spring. It can be grown indoors as it does not need bright sunlight to grow.

Grow it in full shade, with perhaps a little dappled sunlight at the most. It prefers well drained woodland soil with regular moisture, but is not as demanding for moisture as some other gingers.
