These gingers are from the plant order zingiberales and are the more glamorous relatives of edible ginger, bananas and turmeric. Ornamental gingers are perfect for creating a layered effect in a garden bed because they range in height from about twenty centimeters to many meters tall. One's eye can't help but be drawn to the splashes of bright colourful flowers the plants produce. Most ornamental gingers will flower for about 5 to 6 months so they are great value in the garden.
Ornamental gingers thrive in warm and humid areas. In the rooting stages, after sprouting, they need a fair amount of water but once settled they'll need normal. These plants are happy to grow in full shade and will also take up to 90% sun.
Ornamental gingers like fertilisers that are high in phosphorous and potassium. Feed them every month from September through to November to encourage flowering. They are pest free. Ornamental gingers should be kept moist but not too wet. A good layer of mulch will help keep their roots cool.
