Tropicals & Tender Perennials: TimChapman picture (Alpinia intermedia 'Sun Spice' ???)
In reply to: Alpinia intermedia 'Sun Spice' ???
Just a side note: when comparing 'Sunspice' just realize the initial introduction was vegetatively propagated and these (introduced by asiatica) were consistently variegated. Most of what you see now are from tissue culture and are much much more variable. Some may be almost all green, some heavily variegated etc. Some variegations are reliable when TCed others not. Haven't bloomed mine yet, but it's a beautiful species and one of the parents of A formosana.
