Say hey to the Alpinia Zerumbet Variegata aka ‘Shell Ginger’. This babe is definitely grown for her foliage and there’s no wonder why. Her bright green and gold, strappy leaves makes her a standout amongst the crowd – especially when used to break up lots of green foliage. And best yet – she is an evergreen babe meaning that she retains her foliage year-round. She is grown and sold in 100mm pots.
- She can definitely tolerate full sun but thrives in part shade during dry periods
- Make sure to keep her well-watered and fed during spring and summer and she will grow like wildfire
- Prune her as needed
