Ask a question about this product

Kaempferia parviflora is a unique peacock ginger.  In recent years much attention has been focused on its medicinal qualities including its reputation as an aphrodesiac.  With some positive scientific backing the commercial use in herbal supplements has become very widespread.  It has been grown in thailand for many years and normally comes in two forms (there are of course many more types in the wild).  The cultivar we carry is the larger form with red back leaves.  Krachai dom  as its  called refers to the unique black color of the rhizomes when cut.

 

For gardeners this species is very useful.  Although the leaves are not patterned, the red undersides can be showy.  The plants are rather tall by Kaempferia standards and form nice clumps resembling a hosta.  The leaves are held high and are not prone to slug damage.  The  flowers are white and purple and resemble small K. rotunda blooms.  It grows to 1 foot tall in shade and prefers a well drained area.  It is hardy in USDA Zones 8-10
