Zingiber mioga 'White Feather'
White Feather Ginger
Item #: 7501
Zones: 6a to 9b, possibly colder
Height: 36" tall
Zingiber mioga 'White Feather' is the reverse variegated form of Zingiber 'Dancing Crane'. The 3' tall spikes emerge in late spring, adorned with 1' long x 2.5" wide green leaves, edged in creamy yellow that fades to creamy white. Expect a 5' wide patch in five years when grown in rich organic soils. Once the plants are established, they produce light yellow, orchid-like flowers at ground level in late summer and into fall. If you get hungry in the garden, they can be prepared as the perfect snack. Zingiber mioga is a great textural plant for light shade gardens and continues to surprise with its amazing winter hardiness.
