 Globba winitii
Family: Zingiberaceae
Dancing Girl, Dancing Ladies Ginger
Origin: Thailand
Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterYellow/orange flowers

The plants slowly increase to form open clumps of greenery, but the real attraction is the unusual flowers. The inflorescence hangs down from the stem and is comprised of showy bracts in purple or white with tiny yellow flowers. The common name "dancing ladies" is derived from the way the flowers seem to dance in the air suspended from the bracts. The flowers will appear sporadically from July until dormancy in the fall.

Plant Globba winitii in fertile, organic, well-drained soil. They will go dormant in winter, so be sure to mark their spots, as they are among the last of the plants to reappear in spring. In colder climates, the rhizomes may be lifted in winter and stored in a cool garage or basement in slightly damp peat. These plants are virtually pest free and very easy to grow if given suitable conditions.

Provide full shade. Will tolerate a little sun if kept moist. Needs regular moisture in well drained soil during the growing season.

Hardiness: USDA Zones 8 - 11.

Propagation: Dancing ladies ginger is propagated by division of clumps during growing season or by cutting pieces of dormant rhizome.
