Variegated Shell Ginger – Add a Touch of Exotic Elegance to Your Garden

About the Bloom

Experience the stunning beauty of the Variegated Shell Ginger’s foliage, as this tropical perennial does not produce blooms. Instead, it boasts striking variegated leaves that feature a mix of green and creamy white colors, adding a touch of exotic elegance to any landscape. The foliage is the main attraction of this plant, with its vibrant colors and unique patterns creating a visual feast for the eyes.

What to Know About the Plant

The Variegated Shell Ginger is an evergreen plant, meaning it retains its lush foliage year-round, providing a constant source of beauty in your garden. This tropical perennial can grow up to 6 feet tall, making it a perfect choice for adding height and texture to your landscape. Its broad, arching leaves create a tropical feel, transporting you to a lush paradise every time you step into your garden.

Enhancing your Fruitscape

Integrate the exotic beauty of the Variegated Shell Ginger into your fruitscape to create a captivating blend of ornamentals and edibles. Pair this tropical perennial with fruit trees like Mango, Papaya, and Banana to enhance its exotic vibe while adding a tropical flair to your garden. Mix in berry plants such as Strawberries and Blackberries for a pop of color and a delicious harvest. Consider adding other tropical plants like Pineapple or Passionfruit vines for a truly exotic touch. Herbs like Lemongrass and Mint can complement the Variegated Shell Ginger’s fragrance and appearance, creating a sensory paradise in your garden.

Planting & Care
Landscaping with House Plants

While this plant is perfectly suited for growing in a container as a house plant, it can just as well be planted in the ground to enhance a garden. We love these plants for that reason. They add instant appeal to spruce up the atmosphere wherever you choose. They typically prefer a little more shade and warmth which is why they do well on a patio or inside the house. The love of house plants is so natural and healthy. House plants improve the quality of air and enhance our moods. That’s why we can’t seem to get enough of them! Try mixing colors and textures to find your favorite planter look.

Growing Guide

Currently, we only have growing guides for our edible plants.   We are working on them for our ornamental & landscaping plants, and will add them in the near future.  Contact us if you have questions on how to plant and nurture your House Plants, and we will be glad to have one of our gardeners assist you.

Ornamental & Landscaping Plants at Just Fruits & Exotics

Although Just Fruits and Exotics has been providing ornamental and landscaping plants to customers at our nursery since we added “Exotics” to our name in the 1990’s, we never had them available to our customers online.

However, September of 2018, with the launch of our updated Just Fruits and Exotics website, we added many of our ornamental and landscaping plants to our online store for our customers nationwide.   We encourage you to “Fruitscape” your yards, mixing edibles and ornamentals to make your own edible garden.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
