We are pleased to introduce another of the wonderful clump forming gingers from Japan's Shikoku Island. The rounded oval glossy dark green leaves are 4-5" long are overlain with a random silver speckling. In spring, the evergreen clumps are clothed at the base with bizarre dark purple Dutchman's pipe flowers.
