Ginger, Red Stem (Atherton)
Ginger, Red Stem (Atherton)

  • Price: $20.00

Native Ginger is an attractive easily distinguished clumping ginger plant with large glossy leaves and very attractive shell like flowers. It prefers to be an understory plant as it requires protection from strong, dry winds and needs to be kept well watered during dry periods. It needs a well-composted soil, partial or heavy shade. The Atherton Ginger is a perennial growing to 1-2m with spectacular dark green and red foliage.

Comments Warnings : They produce fruit, which is a bright blue berry. Traditionally these berries and the stem tips which have a distinct ginger flavour were eaten by the aboriginals and helped to activate the salivary glands in the mouth to avoid thirst in the long nomadic walkabout.
