Zingiber officinale

These tropical natives are the source of medicinal and edible ginger. Small and reed-like, they are grown for their rhizomes and aromatic leaves. They need warm temperatures and partial shade, so do well as bedding plants in the southern United States and parts of California. Need at least a 10-month growing season for optimum rhizome production. Rhizomes may rot in cold, wet soil.
