As with most gingers, this plant is easy to grow with virtually no pest problems. Crepe Ginger is used for dramatic effect both in the garden and containers. Crepe ginger is a tall and dramatic landscape plant with large dark green leaves, up to 20 cm long or more, about 4-6 cm wide, arranged on the stalk in a spiral. The crepe ginger is beautiful for its bold tropical foliage, and the flowers are just an added bonus. It produces red bracts with white flowers. The flowers appear in late Summer or early Fall, and are quite unusual looking. They form on red 4 inches cone-shaped bracts, with several 2 inches pure white crinkled flowers protruding from each cone. The flowers look like crepe paper, thus the common name of crepe ginger. After the flowers fade away, the attractive red cone-shaped bracts remain. This is the most cold-hardy of the spiral Gingers.
