RE: Gingers that will not go dormant in miami

Here in Phoenix, Alpinia zerumbet the shell ginger and A. zerumbet Variegata does not die back in winter...unless it hit by a hard freeze...which never really happenes it should not die back in Miami....

RE: Gingers that will not go dormant in miami

You should be able to grow most gingers where you are. I have a similar climate here in Queensland and none of my gingers go dormant. Most Costus should do well along with the many varieties of Zingiber spectabile (Zingiber zerumbet goes dormant), Etlingera Torch Gingers, Alpinia, Hedychium, Tapeinochilos. None of these plants will go dormant and die down in winter.
