Red ginger has beautiful flowers that are deep crimson red, and are frequently used in the cut flower industry due to their beauty and ability to last a long time when cut. The inflorescences will appear sporadically throughout the year, most frequently in the hot humid weather of late spring through fall. The foliage is bold and tropical, making a landscape statement on its own. The plants bloom on stems 1 year old or older, so when trimming the plant it is important to not trim stems until after they finish flowering. Alpinias are long-lasting perennials that will gradually spread to form handsome colonies.
Alpinias are easy to grow, requiring well draining soil kept on the moist side and preferring high humidity and partial shade, preferably dappled shade from overhead trees. If planted in full sun, the plants tend to become stunted and the foliage will burn, but if planted in deep shade they will cease to flower.
