Zingiber  mioga (Japanese Ginger)Herb in 2 Litre Pot 

Zingiber mioga is a hardy member of the ginger family, growing from a rhizome the upright stems reach about 1-1.5 m and are covered in lance-shaped leaves, giving it an exotic appearance great for a tropical planting scheme. Orchid-like, white, creamy/yellow flowers appear from large, dark-pink buds at ground level in mid-summer. Dull green fruit appear, splitting open to reveal bright red interiors with black seeds, only the buds and shoots that are edible. Native to the cool mountains of south east China, Vietnam and Korea when it has evolved to cope with extreme cold often down to minus 16 degrees centigrade making it ideal for gardens here. It is best planted in a sunny to part shaded position, in fertile soil which is well-drained in winter. A protective layer of mulch can be added to protect the crown during winter, once the foliage dies back.
