 Alpinia zerumbet 'variegata'
Common name: Variegated Shell Ginger

Alpinia zerumbet 'variegata', otherwise known as Variegated Shell Ginger, is usually grown for its foliage rather than its flowers because it will normally only bloom when there is a very long growing period. The variegation is quite spectacular and catches your attention even before the bloom does. The soft pink bloom is very similar to regular shell ginger (Alpinia zerumbet) but the stalks are usually shorter.
$9.95 each
