Kahili ginger in central Texas? Others?
I just got my first ginger today--a Kahili with several stalks on a pretty big healthy bunch of rhizomes. I'm wondering if I can plant it in the ground and how much sun it will need. . . I'd rather put it in the ground; is this the kind of ginger that will come back if it freezes to the ground? Are there any other hedychiums that would work here in Austin, where the summers are HOT and the winters have some freezes? I can certainly plant it in a protected spot if that will help. Should it get more shade than sun? What about full shade?
