All gingers are closely related to heliconias, flowering bananas, cannas, and marantas. Although these gingers are found throughout the forests of Malaysia, they are relatively new to our landscaping. Due in part to their large showy flowers, they have gained rapid popularity as garden elements. Excellent, long lasting cut flower. The unopened flower buds are edible and very flavorful, and they are used in Southeast Asian cooking. Zone 9b+ or greenhouse. Once the plant is established, corms can be lifted for the winter in colder areas.
