From the Japanese woodlands comes this hardy edible ginger. The 3' stalks of green leaves make a tropical-looking specimen in the woodland garden. From late summer through fall, the small, light yellow, orchid-like flowers peek out from the base of the plant at ground level. The Japanese eat the new shoots and, when really hungry, include the flowers as well.
