An Unbeatably Unique and Easy Tropical Flower!

Add a unique touch to your landscape with the Weeping Blue Ginger! This tropical perennial (Dichorisandra thyrsiflora) features glossy, elongated leaves, topped with gently weeping, violet-blue blooms.

Growing in clumps, the Blue Ginger supports itself with thin stalks and subtly striped foliage that resemble the edible ginger plant. But despite its nickname, it’s not actually related to edible ginger - it's a closer relative to the Spiderwort.

Versatile for planting both indoors and out, the mid-sized Blue Ginger grows between 3-8 feet tall and 3 feet wide. In summer through fall, your Blue Ginger blooms with eye-catching, weeping flower stalks, adorned with violet-blue blossoms. You might even witness several instances of these vibrant blooms throughout the year!

Pair your Blue Ginger with similar tropical and subtropical evergreen plants like Plumeria and Bromeliads. In warmer climates, your Blue Ginger plant can be incorporated into your landscape - in areas with cooler winters, keep your Blue Ginger in a patio pot that you can easily transfer indoors and out, or maintain it as a house plant.

A true jack-of-all-trades, this tropical beauty brightens up gardens, living rooms, and walkways equally well. And it's incredibly easy to maintain - the Blue Ginger plant tolerates drought conditions and dry air, needs only partial sun and can be easily pruned to control its height.

Weeping Ginger

Mine came this spring. I transplanted it, placed in on my back porch facing north. It bloomed every day and grew two new branches. I brought it in for winter and it's still flowers everyday.
