Does anyone know if there is any variegated ginger that grows in zone8?

Shell ginger? I grow it in 8b. I don't think the shell ginger flowers are as cool as some of the others, but it might do depending on what you are looking for.

Here is a link that might be useful: Variegated shell ginger

Thanks for the info. Shell ginger looks ok but does it come back after winter?
