Last February we had that really bad freeze and my ginger died back all the way to the ground.
I thought I was going to lose it all but this is a picture I took this week.
It is about one foot shorter than it was last year and very full. I doubt it blooms this year but I am grateful it did not die.
Sometimes plants will survive extremely cold temperatures even when the odds are against them.
When your ginger blossoms, does it smell just wonderful? Many years ago we were in Hawaii and there was something in bloom that smelled so sweet, turned out to be ginger and I have, ever since, wished it grew here!
To me the blooms do not smell but that could just be me. This is a Variegated Shell Ginger.
Wait! This is a beautiful plant… wow and it came back!! I want one..
We have planted in several locations and all are doing quite well.
