Abstract: Red ginger, Alpinia purpurata, is a tall, upright, herbaceous, evergreen plant from the South Pacific, with bright red floral bracts and inconspicuous white flowers. Red ginger is quite popular as an ornamental and cut flower, both for the home and for commercial sale. When we refer to “red ginger” in this publication, this usually includes both red and pink gingers. This publication covers all aspects of growing these gingers in Hawaii.
