Blue Ginger

The beautiful blue ginger (Dichorisandra thyrsiflora) – while not belonging to the ginger family – has ginger-like, arching stems and vibrant, purple/blue flowers in autumn.
Planted in a shady position in our garden, the blue ginger makes a vibrant statement in early autumn. The long striped stems are very decorative and the new flower buds – with their spiky green tips – give a first glimpse of the beautiful blue flowers.
Growing near a native ginger and a cordyline, the blue ginger blends in well and looks very spectacular when flowering.

Shell Ginger

This year, our Shell Ginger – which has beautiful hanging shell-like flowers and long tough variegated leaves – has many flower spikes.  It has grown into a plant about 2m tall and 2m wide and makes a good screen to cover the fence and create privacy.
