Native to Brazil
Blue Gingers are cultivated for their striking blue
flowers, but the foliage alone is gorgeous.. The flowers have three light blue sepals,
three dark blue petals, and six stamens. The inflorescence is a terminal thyrse, a panicle
with an indeterminate central axis. As long as conditions are conducive to blooming, the
thyrse will continue to expand upward adding flower buds at the top.
Dichorisandra thyrsiflora, 'Blue Ginger' -
gorgeous blue flowers not a true ginger.
Blue Ginger or Dichorisandra thyrsiflora is a
wonderful, tropical-looking plant which resembles ginger in growth and habit. This plant
grows very well in the wild in Hawaii.
The Blue Ginger (Dichorisandra thyrsiflora

Ginger is actually a relative of the wandering Jew plant. The stems grow to a 3-6 feet in
height. The leaves are arranged spirally around the stem similar to Costus gingers.

As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges
individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the
discount (i.e.: additional item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same
items rather than a varied selection. Includes postage, USDA certification and inspection,
proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I cant really change any
of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it gets hard to discount much as each
different species requires it's own prep & packing, then at USDA each has to be
unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last
piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It
takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we
drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post
Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.
We ship via USPS
Mondays-Wednesday with Delivery confirmation.
Payment must be received
within 7 days of the auction ending.
Non-paying bidders may
receive negative feedback and will be reported as an unpaid item to eBay.
