It grows to about 50cm. I keep it in a pot in the shadehouse, but I doubt it would be too invasive. It is nowhere as vigorous as shell ginger or the other large varieties.

It is a tropical plant, but you have a glasshouse full of things that shouldn't grow down your way, so you probably could give it a try.

We've had both of those temps down here...

I do like the effect of the flowers with the striped foliage behind. :D
