Alpinia zerumbet Variegata or ginger, everyone knows from the kitchen, but besides those there are many species such as the Hedychium species. And the fact that the ginger has a beautiful inflorescence is also not generally known.
This ginger is fairly hardy and can be planted in the ground. In winter, apply a layer of peat to protect the ginger root from freezing.
Then the leaf will freeze and is not evergreen.

In summer, white flowers appear with an orange core that smell delicious and have an exotic look.  
The leaf of the Alpinia zerumbet Variegata is yellow / green striped. It is a beautiful appearance in the garden.
Cover the ginger in the winter with a ground cover such as peat or tree bark. The leaves can be cut off during the winter. Make sure it is in a not too wet place because of the rotting of the ginger tubers.

In the spring when the soil starts to get warmer, the ginger tubers shoot out again.
May get manure regularly from April to September and likes to get water regularly.
Can also be kept in a tub on the terrace or even in a conservatory. This ginger may stand in the half shade on the terrace and in a bright place in the conservatory.
If this ginger is kept as a container plant above + 10 ° C, this is wintergreen.
If in a wet place in the ground during the winter, then tubers prefer to dig and frost-free in potting soil overwintering due to root rot.
In this way you do not need to water. Only when the spring starts, around the beginning of April, will give water again.
Winter hardiness zone 8b (-10ºC).

wat een mooie plant. Groeit snel en mooi blad. In de zon en warmte krult het blad, beter niet in felle zon. Maar eenmaal zon minder fel opent het blad zich weer. Echt prachtig!

Een mooie plant met grote bonte bladeren. Ik heb hem uitgegraven en in een pot in de badkamer overwinterd. Helaas te snel in de zon teruggezet, waardoor veel bladeren gelig beschadigd zijn door de felle zon. Een les voor volgend jaar. Maar de plant groeit prima door. Ben benieuwd of ik er een keer bloemen in ga krijgen. Schijnt in ons klimaat nogal lastig te zijn.
