Gingers, also called "ginger lilies," make great landscape or patio plants. They are tolerant of temperature extremes, will grow in poor soil, and can even grow in those wet areas where little else will grow. Most species are grown for their beautiful, fragrant flowers, but there are varieties used as condiments and varieties used as natural shampoo/conditioner in Hawaii.

|Very informative article. Thank you for introducing me to new forms of ginger. I have only known the native variety, Asarum canadense, which grows in my shade garden. Nothing splashy about it, although it is a jewel to my garden. I will need to explore some of the hardy varieties and see if they would also enjoy living in my garden space. Great article!|
