Early Blooming Gingers

 

Gingers enjoy our hot humid summers and don’t start to bloom until the heat is really on.  I was surprised to see that the Pink V had been very busy reproducing. There were about 14 stalks blooming that had multiplied from the single original  plant.  The Curcuma, White Angel, is one the hardiest gingers, never failing to come back year after year.  It multiplies and each clump gets bigger with age.  During those horribly hot days of summer when many plants stop blooming, is it always a pleasure to see the tropical flowers of the gingers.

    It is nice to have plants that love heat ,lantana is one for us here in Ga. some of the gingers you have will grow here but don’t flower because of the leaves being froze off in the winter.

    I’ve never grown gingers, but gosh, yours are lovely. Sun requirements?

  3. My Ginger is pitiful. I need a consult.

  4. I will trade orchids for gingers! Love those, I think the sandy soil here (did I say soil!) it not so great for gingers.

    I had no idea gingers had such pretty flowers, or that there was such a variety. It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I really like both the white and the Pink V. Just lovely.

    Hot and humid must be awful for you but lucky that’s what the gingers want.

    That is one of the fragrances that I miss from Southern California. There are a few that live here, but they are not popular.
