Description of the plant

Ah, the Alpinia zerumbet, it heals all the pains of the soul!

It is not by chance that this Ginger is called by so many sweet words "flower of paradise", "flower of my soul", "tears of the virgin",... Everything about it is attractive: its very decorative foliage, with shiny leaves finely variegated with yellow; its long spikes of flowers with elegant white corollas opening on bold red and yellow petals; its funny orange fruits looking like Chinese lanterns...

And moreover, it smells good... Its flowers are deliciously fragrant and its leaves smell like cinnamon! That's why it's also known as "Cinnamon Ginger". It is hardy - its rhizome can withstand -10°C - but keep it at more than 5°C for a beautiful bloom.

So, no hesitation, quickly, a cinnamon ginger in your home!

Also known as: Light galangal, Pink porcelain lily, Shell-flower, shell ginger, Butterfly ginger
