are leaves and stalks of ginger plant edible?

robertbirder(z6b/7a DC)November 8, 2004

are the leaves of ornamental ginger (Zingiber mioga) edible? stalks? fresh? dried? once they turn yellow, is it too late to harvest them? although the plant is described as fragrant, it is not evident to me.

thanks

All of the butterfly gingers roots are also edible.
