NATIVE GINGER

Alpinia caerulea compliments of crop wild relativesBotanical Name: Alpinia caerulea

A versatile plant loved by Aboriginal people. The ginger tasting roots were eaten and the flesh from the bright blue fruit. The large leaves were thatched and used to make shelters and to wrap food for cooking. Excellent landscape specimen.

In culinary terms the rhysome is not a patch on Chinese ginger but an attractive native plant all the same. Looking forward to tasting the fruit.

Struggled a bit with being flooded and now seems to be affecting growth , I'm hoping it will eventually bounce back to health
