ZINGIBER zerumbet
Shampoo Ginger

An interesting ginger growing 5 to 7’ in one season. Arising from the base of the plant in mid summer are 4 – 5” green cone-like bracts which turn scarlet red and produce creamy white flowers. When the blooms are ‘ripe’ they can be squeezed and will produce a water soluble, fresh smelling, syrupy shampoo. Grow in full sun and rich well draining soil. Easy to over winter as a houseplant or dormant.
Size: 2 gallon
