 Zeuxine strateumatica
Family: Orchidaceae
Schlechter soldier's orchid, Centipede Grass Orchid
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Z. strateumatica, has become naturalized in southern Florida after being introduced into the area as an adventive with Centipede Grass from China (this is where the Florida nickname "Centipede Grass Orchid" came from for this species.) Looks too nice to be just a weed! It emerges in winter, blooming in late December and January; within a few weeks, the plants vanish. The following year, they may return, and from the same root a new plant will grow next to the previous one.

Click to see full-size image Zingiber collinsii
Family: Zingiberaceae
Ginger Silver Streaks
Origin: Vietnam, Cambodia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeKeep soil moistRegular waterOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This species is distributed from southeastern Viet Nam to the south of high central Viet Nam and extends to the eastern parts of Cambodia. Though rather common in southeastern Viet Nam, this species has only recently been described. The species is listed as Vulnerable. Species Authority: Mood and Theilade. In Pham (2003) this species is misidentified as Zingiber acuminatum.

The foliage is stunning. Its really a show stopper in the yard. Grows in shady places in evergreen to semi-evergreen forest undergrowth. Usually found as single plants, but rarely forming large clumps.

Midnight ginger has shiny, almost black foliage (deep purple-bronze) that appears to be lacquered. This is a stunner with bright basal yellow cone flowers in spring. The long lasting cones later turn with aging to a pretty apricot and pink. It may be deciduous in zone 9.
