This is one of my favorite gingers. It has recently re-emerged from winter dormancy. It is a cross I got from Tom Woods about 2 seasons ago. He said it was his own hybrid. I not only like the high degree of silver variegation but the signal flowers are a much deeper warmer purple than the flowers of most Kaempferia
