Sold as rhizome(Root section). Its inflorescence comes out of the ground instead of the terminal spike, thus making it easier to cut as a cut flower. The bracts are cherry red with yellow edges. As the bract opens up the lower bract leaves turn down revealing a cone shaped torch. An exceptional ginger for the garden or greenhouse, give it plenty of room to grow. Height 12′ to 17′. Needs a warm climate or greenhouse. Very exotic!
