      Hello, yes, we are a state certified nursery–we ship to all states. However you have a very short time to order the plant for immediate delivery-we will be accepting orders for immediate delivery for only another 22 hours from now.

      Hello Wil,
      Thanks for staying in touch. I updated the inventory on Myopga for you so you can order right now. In general on our website, the plants that we’ll be offering in the spring won’t be completely updated to the net until the new catalog goes out after the first of the year. So after that time is a really good window for browsing and ordering. We won’t start shipping to the warmer states until March 15th, and most orders won’t be shipped until mid-april. We’re trying to be pragmatic about all this–we want people to order so they get their foot in the door, but we don’t want to sell something we don’t have, and we don’t want the plants to ship out until the weather warms up a bit.

    Yuko Hatajiri (verified owner)

    I’ve just ordered two plants. I live in Chicago. Do you suggest that I plant these in a pot and bring to indoor in winter ? If so, should I keep water in winter?

      Hello Yuko,
      YEs, Myoga is outdoor hardy to zone 6 to 12, so in a Chicago Zone 5 you would want to grow it as a potted plant and bring in for the winter. They do need occasional watering when dormant. They do grow well in pots and I have often see them flower in pots.

      Can the buds be used like the roots, as a spice?

      The buds are a delicacy in the sushi tradition, they are taken fresh, they are ginger-ey.

  4. Question

    Ilene

    How quickly will they have buds? Do I have to wait few years? Also can they be grown indoor? Because Georgia weather gets too cold or too warm…

    if not, do you sell myouga buds only during harvesting season?

      Hello Ilene,
      The gingers basically like tropical shade and so a good indoor growing facility can work well for them. We sell the plants, not the buds. Myoga ginger is easy to grow, matures quickly and if given the right conditions makes buds the first year.

    do you ship this plant to Hawaii or is it restricted? If it is not restricted, can I order now? Can the plant be brought to Hawaii if someone visited Oregon and transported it back?

      The turgid flower buds are the part used, you pick them when they appear at the base of the plant. They occur with some frequency. We had a prolific show of these this year in August. r

      Is the yoga ginger you offer the variegated type (Dancing Crane)? Which is better to grow, the all green or the variegated plant?

      Hello there, Our Myoga is the standard type, not a variegated type. I admit I don’t much like variegated cultivars, they tend to indicate human meddling and plants need all the photosynthesis they can get. Richo

    I am from Japan and have been searching for the Myoga plants in the U.S.
    I was very glad to find that you grow Ginger Myoga plants.
    I ordered two plants and they were delivered promptly to my house in Wisconsin. I was very excited to open the package and found two very nice- looking Myoga plants. I planted in pots and they are now growing very healthy.

    Arogatou!!
    Thank you very much for your service. I am so happy to find Myoga plants.

      Yes, if freezing weather is encountered, the myoga will die back to the crown and if it gets too cold, it may be winter killed, also. In the tropics the plant is evergreen.

      Richo, can the ginger-ey buds be dried and used in a tea? If so, would there be a significant difference between this bud and root of Zingiber officinale?

      Thanks so much for your time!

      Hiu Crystal,
      I don’t know, but now I want to try it! The buds are composed of sheafs of tissue and I think they would dry down well if you separated them. They are more highly perfumed than ginger root, they would be a bit different I think.
