Zingiber malaysianum

Black Ginger, Midnight Ginger
Family: Zingiberaceae
Origin: Malaysia
Small plant 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterOrnamental foliageYellow, orange flowersSubtropical, mature plant cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Zingiber malaysianum, more commonly known as Black ginger or midnight ginger, is a small plant native to Malaysia. Growing between 2 and 5 feet tall, it requires semi-shade and regular watering to thrive. The ornamental foliage, which is a glossy deep purple-bronze in color, pairs nicely with its yellow and orange flowers in the spring and summer periods.

This semi-tropical plant is hardy to USDA Zones 9-11 and can tolerate mature temperatures of at least 30sF for a short time. When growing Black Ginger in colder regions, special care should be taken to ensure its winter survival. Planting the shrub in a container and then bringing it indoors during colder months is often recommended, as this will give the plant a greater chance at withstanding freezing temperatures.

In addition to being brought indoors during colder months, the plant must be provided with plenty of light and humidity. The soil should remain damp enough to support growth but should also be able to dry out slightly between waterings. During dry spells, Zingiber malaysianum should be watered more frequently, as it does not like to become too dry. In the summer months, additional fertilization is recommended to give the shrub a boost of nutrients and to promote healthy growth.

Overall, Zingiber malaysianum is an easy-to-care-for shrub, requiring semi-shade, regular watering, and protection during cold winter months. With its striking, glossy foliage and yellow and orange flowers, this small shrub adds both beauty and color to any garden.

This ginger has tall, erect stems with narrow leaves, this basal bloomer produces green cones that turn red when mature. It is a herbaceous perennial with upright stems and narrow medium green leaves arranged in two ranks on each stem. Ginger grows from an aromatic tuberlike rhizome (underground stem) which is warty and branched. The inflorescence grows on a separate stem from the foliage stem, and forms a dense spike. The bracts are green with translucent margins and the small flowers are yellow green with purple lips and cream colored blotches. Most of edible gingers in cultivation are sterile cultivars grown for the edible rhizome, and the flower is rarely seen. Ginger is often grown in a container and brought indoors in winter when water and light are reduced and the plant is allowed to "rest." Common cooking gingers are rarely found in garden centers as potted plants because they do not have much ornamental value. Plant this ginger in the garden to produce your own fresh ginger.
