(syn: Zingiber mioga 'Nakafu') This selection of the edible (flowers and new shoots) Japanese woodland ginger comes from the collection of famed Japanese nursery Gotemba. The 3' stalks of 1' long x 2.5" wide green leaves are each highlighted with a stunning central "white lightning" pattern. Each easy-to-grow clump of Zingiber mioga 'Dancing Crane' multiplies rapidly, soon making a 5' wide patch in five years. In late summer through fall, the small, light yellow, orchid-like flowers peek out from the base of the plant at ground level. Personally, we hope you can find something less attractive to eat!
