Kaempferia grow from small globular rhizomes which grow fleshy roots. Most are low growing which colorfully marked foliage. Flowers either emerge in the spring just prior to the foliage or with the foliage continuing flowering through the summer. Most species naturally go dormant for a portion of the year.

The genus has had little attention until recently and new species are finally being published.
