Here in Ft. lauderdale it goes dormant in winter and pops back up in spring. It is not evergreen.

I bought a white and purple one at Walmart in 07. They have come back each year, although they are the last ginger to emerge. They need a lot of water and shade. Planted under red tips in practically full shade. Blooms repeatedly.
