Alpinia Caerulea - Green

A subtropical, perennial, rhizatomous herbacious plant with arching stems to 2m tall and fleshy green alternate leaves to 40cm long.  This species is naturally found in rainforest, gallery forest and wet sclerophyll forest canopy in eastern Australia.  Insignificant white flowers are followed by 1cm dark blue berries which contain dark seeds.  The pith around the seeds and the gingery root tips are edible.  A great choice for subtropical to tropical gardens, in shady areas but will also tolerate full sun.

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.
