Gingers in the Garden

We have a new section of garden to plant and one of the areas includes a shady spot under our fig tree. Because that area is also semi-protected, being on the south side of the house, it means we can plant some not-so-cold-tolerant species like this ginger.

Chris and I were dazzled by this ‘Dancing Ladies’ ginger, Globba winitii.

And the same species, different variety, called ‘White Dragon’.

I’m thinking we may end up trying to find some cold hardy ground orchids to put in as well, maybe a cymbidium or the like. But I’m loving the tinge of tropical and Florida that I can bring into our garden! Now, to see how they handle winter come January!
