One of the most spectacular gingers! It has arching 6-8 foot leaves and lovely porcelain pink and white basal inflorescences from 1-2 feet tall. The pink and white "petals" are actually bracts, which later reveal small true flowers inside. Attractive in the garden and as an exotic and long lasting cut flower.
