Alpinia zerumbet 'Variegata' - Variegated Shell Ginger

$ 12.00 $ 10.00

Alpinia zerumbet 'Variegata' is an ornamental plant in the Ginger Family (Zingiberaceae) that has gorgeous variegated leaves and unusual cascading inflorescences. Although technically hardy to USDA Zone 8, we like growing this plant indoors to keep the large and lush variegated foliage year-round. And since blooms appear from old growth that typically dies back in frost, keeping this plant indoors keeps us hopeful for the fragrant blooms!


Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when surface of soil is dry to the touch.
• Considerations: This plant does not like to dry out completely.


You'll get a healthy Alpinia zerumbet 'Variegata' that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4.5" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!
