(White Ginger, Butterfly Ginger) Herbaceous perennial native to E. Asia and India, commonly found in the highlands of Hawaii, flowering to 3 feet. Emitting the scent of Gardenias, the flowers resemble a butterfly in flight and make a lovely garland for the hair. The exotic-scented essential oil from flowers and roots is used in high end perfumes. Rhizomes develop into large ginger roots that are good in cooking–tastes like mild yellow ginger (see photo of root grown in our greenhouse, which weighed in at 0.35 lb). Plant prefers moist or boggy soils and full sun.
