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.

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

also try:
alpinia formosana
Zingiber darcyii
Hedychium "Dr Moy"
Zingiber collinsii "SIlver Streaks"
Costus speciosus
Costus amazonicus variegata

Alpinia vittata

Sure does. Mine dies to the ground in winter and comes back in spring. So do my costus varities.
