(syn: A. h. clone 2) This easy-to-grow ginger boasts matte finish silvery leaves. Each leaf is highlighted by a dark green streak down the center. Radiating out from the central streak is a rainbow of colors starting with silver and going through grey-green, and ending with dark green veining along the edge. Rich woodland soils that don't hold excess moisture in winter are perfect.
