We generally try to grow plants that are, well, easy to grow. This super cool, hardy ginger relative is one of the few exceptions. It is native to pine forest clearings in central China and requires very specific conditions: cool summers, mild winters, light shade, and humus rich, sandy, moist but well drained soil. Other than that, it is easy to grow.
