Comments: Its corrugated leaf surface makes it one of the most striking and amazing of the foliage gingers. Makes an excellent pot plant where it is not cold hardy outdoors. Fertilize gingers several times during the growing season. Protect gingers from hard freezes. Mulch will provide some protection from freeze injury.
