A very low growing and compact ginger blooming continuously through summer. The foliage of this Kaemferia has a silvery cast, making the plants stand out in shady areas of the garden. In mid-summer the plants have numerous pink-purple blossoms that seem to have a metallic sheen. The almost sparkling blooms mingle perfectly with the silvery foliage and brighten the woodland garden.
