In warmer climates, growing peacock ginger is a great way to cover a shady part of the garden. This pretty groundcover thrives in the shade and produces distinctive, striped leaves along with small, delicate flowers. Hardy in USDA zones 8 through 11, this is a delightful plant that is easy to grow in the garden. What is Peacock Ginger? Peacock ginger belongs to the Kaempferia genus and there are several species, all native to Asia. They are largely grown for the decorative foliage, although they also produce pretty little flowers, usually pale purple to pink. These are perennial, groundcover-type plants, most varieties growing no more than a foot (31 cm.) tall.

How to Grow Peacock Ginger:

To grow peacock ginger, first find a good space for these shade-loving plants. Some varieties will thrive with more sun, but most prefer a nice shady spot. They will tolerate various types of soil, but they prefer a well-drained spot with rich soil.

Plant your peacock gingers so that the rhizomes are about a half inch (1 cm.) below the soil. Water the plants until they are established and then only as needed. Your peacock ginger plants should grow readily, even out-competing weeds in a bed. They are not often troubled by pests or disease. Peacock ginger plant care is easy and trouble free. These shady groundcover plants can be mostly left alone, once established, and make for a simple and rewarding addition to your shaded beds where other plants struggle to grow.
