Answer: There are many types of ginger to grow in Alabama. Most will not take that much sunlight. Hedychium (white butterfly) ginger will be marginal in such an exposure, but may burn a little. It also tends to get a bit too tall to allow a good view of the cannas.
Some other options include a dwarf canna, or another perennial like lantana, Firebush (Hamelia patens), Gardenia (a fragrant choice), or a bush type rose such as 'Nearly Wild', 'Knock Out', or 'Belinda's Dream'.
