Hedychium, Roscoea, Zingiber and Cautleya are all commonly referred to as Gingers. They have beautiful foliage and stunning flowers from mid to late season, often highly scented. Many species are extremely hardy, even surviving outdoors during winter 2010/11. They make superb conservatory plants, especially the evergreen species.
