Thai Ginger (Alpinia galanga) GALANGAL
(You Will Receive ONE Plant - 1 FeetTall - ship in 1 Gal Pot)

a clumping, rather narrow, gracile ginger relative to 5-6' tall, with wonderfully fragrant foliage and rhizomes. Responsible for one of the characteristic flavors of many Southeastern Asian cuisines, it is especially characteristic of Thai cuisine and has been described as "lemony-ginger".The flavor of your fresh rhizomes will be different from and distinctly superior to any dried form. Narrow, dark green juvenile leaves reach 6" long, mature-phase leaves (2nd to 3rd year) are longer, wider and with noticeably longer internodes. Slender terminal flower spikes are produced by those mature-phase culms and bear, in late summer to fall, a few scattered small, spidery, fragrant, creamy white flowers with yellow markings. Reported root hardy (i.e. top-deciduous) to USDA zone 7-8 (roughly Sunset zone 5) it grows well through the almost-truly-tropical USDA zone 11. Can be sited in mostly sun, but it seems to like the combination of warmth and half shade best. For best growth give it rich, moist soil. It makes a very effective, compact, lush, bamboo-like container plant.
