Common Name: Variegated Shell Ginger, Shell Ginger
Availabilty: In Stock
Welcome to the jungle! The gorgeous Variegated Shell Ginger is a truly stunning, dense clumping evergreen with some of the most striking tropical foliage available. Luscious big-leafed foliage in striking bright, cheery greens and slashed with gold stripes grows year round, while pale pink and cream bell flowers bloom in abundance, draping along drooping stalks throughout the warmer months.
Prized by landscapers and growing 1 - 3 metres tall and about 2 metres wide, this tropical beauty is quite the show off and ideal for container planting, tropical landscaping, striking understory plant, planting along pathways or borders and in sheltered positions in mixed beds. Pop her inside with bright light for a truly spectacular centre piece in your indoor garden.
Low maintenance and easy to grow, she's moderately hardy and a fast grower as long as provided ample watering. Adapts to full sun, but prefers part to full shade for best result. Plant en masse under trees or along pathways for amazing garden contrast!
Moderately hardy. Humidity tolerant, cold tolerant, but frost sensitive - will die back a little in frost, but should adapt to light frosts. Most well drained soils. Part - full shade for best result, bright light indoors. Attractive to local wildlife.
