One of the easiest to grow workhorses of the asian gingers is the deciduous A. caulescens. The dark green leaves with deeply impressed veins clothe the slowly stoloniferous rhizomes. In early spring (mid April in NC), A. caulescens is adorned at the base of the foliage with cute little rounded rosy pink flowers with strongly reflexed of the really cute flowers in the genus.
