Family: Costaceae
Variegated Spiral Ginger
Origin: South America
Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeKeep soil moistPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Originally from South America, this ginger is very popular in Hawaii and Florida. The actual name is C. arabicus variegata and it is labeled Costus amazonicus variegata almost everywhere. Spiraling stems rise with a strong white variegation and topped with green and white cone like flowers. Prefers shade, moist soil and lots of water.

It may tolerate some frost, and if tops die back, leave it in the ground and it may re-sprout from the roots. This ginger may grow up to 8' tall, usually much less, under 3'. Grows in a clump, best in rich highly organic soil with regular moisture. Easy to grow, can even be propagated from cuttings.
