Native Ginger Description

Lush under-story native ginger with glossy evergreen foliage, gold-green backed with rusty red.

Creamy-white flowers are followed by clusters of deep blue berries.

Berries are edible and loved by birds, if you’re tempted to try the berries, eat only the flesh and not the seeds.

Native Ginger Maintenance

Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks.

Water regularly during dry periods.

Prune stems to the ground if plants become untidy, new shoots will replace those removed.

Fertilise regularly using an organic liquid fertiliser for lush new growth.
