I think it would just be a great cut flower plant. Super cool looking! But with the awapuhi, I will have three different beds of ginger, so I need to show SOME restraint!I have seen the beehive also, but am not sure if it creates the shampoo .... they look similar ... the only person I have reached said not edible and no to shampoo also. You may be able to call suncoast tropicals in Australia to learn more and let us know
Now you are just being mean. I had better hold off for a bit. I have several things coming this way, and I'm not sure I even have room for the stuff I already have!Have you seen the variegated shell ginger and the giant shell ginger yet ??? I have been growing the variegated in my courtyard since childhood. It is stunning especially in bloom. Only recently learned it is edible.
