Ginger ID

Hi From Australia.

I have a wide variety of gingers, but one I am unable to identify. It grows to about 3 feet is evergreen, does not flower, has very heavily scented foliage when rubbed between your fngers. It was sold to me as "scented ginger". Goes extremely well in semi-shade to shade. Haven't tried part sun to full sun yet as I have just moved approx 1000 miles and am revitilising my stock.

Can anyone help me with the ID of this ginger?

RE: Ginger ID

sounds like the one in my garden I have as "false cardamom". Can you post a photo?

RE: Ginger ID

Sorry can't at the moment due to relocation. It is only just beginning to grow foliage as it is growing from bare. thanks for your help, much appreciated.

RE: Ginger ID

Sounds like Alpinia Nutans.


RE: Ginger ID

Perhaps Buderim Ginger (in Queensland, Australia) could help out?

Here is a link that might be useful: Buderim Ginger
