Description

Family Zingiberaceae
Originating from Nepal

An upright ginger with long, lance-shaped glaucous green leaves and large upright racemes, up to 30cm in length, of strong, dark orange flowers with red stamens. Tara is one of the hardiest of the genus and may be left in the ground in milder areas. A protective mulch in winter is still a wise precaution.
The debate continues as to whether Tara is from the coccinium or gardnerianum species, or indeed a hybrid of both. It certainly shares qualities of both its potential parents plus hybrid vigour and hardiness.
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in sun/part shade.
