Beehive Ginger (Zingiber spectabile)

The Beehive Ginger is a fabulous tropical plant and some species can be grown locally. Best success locally is achieved with deciduous varieties that are dormant through the colder months.

Their curious long lasting ‘beehives ‘are available in a range of colours and house the many small flowers. In our climate they usually erupt from the ground in late summer and autumn.
