Soft lilac mist hanging onto wooden branches is how the aromatic Ginger bush appears along riverbanks and streams. A woody, slightly succulent shrub known for the lovely clusters of small lilacto white flowers in winter time. Take note that this aromatic plant is no relation of the true ginger plant. It prefers semi-arid conditions in winter, and can thus be cultivated all across Southern Africa. Not only used as an ornamental plant, this plant is known for traditionally being used in the medicinal applications, serving as a great container plant and attracting various insects and birds to one's garden. ZA Distribution: Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Mpumalanga.
