KAEMPFERIA 'GRANDE'
Giant Peacock Ginger
(We were formerly selling this as K. grandis, please update your ID)

A very pretty type of Ginger known as the Giant Peacock Ginger. Peacock Gingers are dormant in the winter time. In the spring time, pink flowers start to emerge from the soil first. The flowers and leaves are not seen at the same time on this species. It is a really unusual thing to see and will have everyone stopping and wondering what is coming out of the pot! After the plant is finished flowering, large and long gorgeous green leaves emerge. The leaves have a nice white pattern on them. Peacock gingers like to be grown in shade and they like to be kept dry in winter and slightly moist in summer. They can take temperatures to about low 30's. If you live in a cold climate, you can dig up the rhizome in the winter and store it inside in a dry place. Plant again in the spring. This is a fairly easy plant to grow and a really nice foliage plant. You do not see it offered too often either.
