Zingiber montanum 'Chocolate Pinecone Ginger'

This asian medicinal plant is also known as Zingiber purpureum and Zingiber cassumanar.  Much of the literature written about its uses will be found under the name Z. cassumanar.   This particular form was first introduced as Z. purpureum in hawaii.  It eventually made its way to the mainland but it still not very well known.  It is a reliable grower that is usually one of the first Zingiber to sprout and also one of the first to bloom.  It can be grown from filtered shade to full sun and has an upright growth habit (unlike the arching forms of some species).

 

Beginning in late June to early July it starts producing several 'Chocolate Pinecone' inflorescences that are held on stems 8-16inches long.  Creme colored flowers appear dialy for weeks.  Once done flowering, the inflorescence begins turning red and will stay attractive for a few more weeks, making the whole blooming season l months long.

It is hardy in USDA Zones 8-10.  It is one of the tallest of the hardy Zingiber species, maxing out at 7-8 feet tall.
