Wild ginger lovers are going to go nuts when they see the incredible foliage on this rare Japanese ginger. The evergreen leaves have silver markings and random silver splats through the one of those SPIN ART carnival machines. The bizarre flower, white with a purple center, looks like something you would find at the ocean's bottom. All gingers are perfect for the woodland garden around hostas and ferns.
