This shorter cultivar is less flamboyant than the other hardy gingers but still a beautiful and valuable garden plant and likely the hardiest of the genus. Three foot tall stems are topped with 18 inch long inflorescences of tightly packed, deep orange, moderately fragrant flowers. Full sun in rich soil with abundant moisture during the growing season. Mulch with fallen leaves in winter. In colder regions grow in a pot or store in dry peat moss and keep above zero.
