Zingiber mioga: A
perennial, thought to be introduced from China, grows in the wild
and is cultivated in the shade of a tree where people reside nearby.
Rhizomes with scaly leaves crawl sideways, and pseudostems are
annual and erect and 40-100cm in height. Blades are lanceolate to
narrow oblong, 20-30cm long, and 3-6cm wide, with sharply pointed
tips, bases with short peduncles, and pseudostems made by
overlapping leaf sheaths. Flowers come out from one to another and
wilt in a day. Bloom time: August-October.
