Alpinia zerumbet 'Variegata' This variegated form of the shell ginger is often sold as a house plant, but it is actually quite hardy, evergreen down to the mid twenties Fahrenheit. In colder areas, it can still come back in spring, generally it is rated hardy through zone 8. The foliage is strongly variegated with yellow and light green streaks that can brighten up a shady area in the garden. It produces flowers like its non-variegated cousin Alpinia zerumbet, but not quite as easily or prolifically, and only if grown in a few hours of direct sunlight. Like other Alpinia species, it blooms only on second year growth, so if the foliage does freeze back, you will not see flowers.

It is best grown in part sun, in rich organic soil, kept moist but well drained. Propagation is by division of the rhizomes.
