Alpinia caerulea - Native ginger

DESCRIPTION: Lush under-story native ginger with glossy evergreen foliage. Creamy-white flowers appear in summer 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.

LOCATION: Plant in free draining soil in a part-full shade location.
CARE: 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.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1.5 - 2 m H x 1 m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm including the pot height of 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
