Zingiber zerumbet - flower cone Zingiber zerumbet is known throughout most of the world as the "shampoo ginger" due to the milky substance in the flower cones being used as a shampoo by some cultures. In the southern United States, it is known as the "pinecone ginger" or "pinecone lily". The foliage grows to about 6 ft tall and the flower spikes arise from the ground. They are long-lasting and make excellent flower arrangements.

This ginger is root hardy to zone 8, but the foliage will freeze back with a hard frost. The rhizomes are subject to rotting if they are kept too moist during dormancy. In the summer, it increases quickly when grown in conditions to its liking.

Zingiber zerumbet should be planted in rich, moist, organic soil. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade.
