Landscape Value
Roscoea are exotic cousins to the Ginger, native to the Himalayas.
This selection bears short spikes of orchid-like flowers in a soft creamy yellow to ivory-white shade, against a low mound of green sword-shaped leaves.
Plants dislike hot, humid summer climates.
Performs best in a cool, moist woodland setting.
Clumps may be divided after several years, best accomplished in early spring.
Although surprisingly hardy, in cold winter regions these may be wintered in pots indoors.
