SOURCES FOR GINGERSBy Barbara Ward (MSBarbara) on June 8, 2010
|About forty years ago, I moved to South Mississippi and saw my first Hedychium coronarium, Butterfly Ginger. At that moment, I was hooked. My greatest joy was becoming computer proficient and discovering there were Hedychiums in orange, peach, and yellow, and combinations of those colors. Since that time, my quest for Hedychiums has not stopped. Because of the internet and garden forums, ginger collectors can put together an excellent ginger collection without leaving home. Below is a list of sources to purchase gingers on the internet. Unfortunately, many fine sources collectors have used over the years have closed because of hurricanes and for economic reasons. They will be missed.|
If you have other sources or are a business which sells gingers,
please send me a cMail and I will include the company in the list.

Aloha Tropicals They send plants in 2" pots that are pot bound, which look as though they have been in the pots for years and dried out and regrown many times. None were over 2". One rhizome was less than 1". I only purchase from them if the plant can not be purchased anywhere else.
