Alpinia nutans 'Narrow Leaf'
19th April 2007
This narrow leaved plant has been doing the rounds for a while, under a number of names. For the moment it has settled down as the 'Narrow Leaf' form
of A.nutans, under which name I got it from Plant Delights Nursery, though they have suggested that it could really be A.calcarata. Maybe it will flower
(though I'm not expecting it next year) and maybe that will clarify the issue. It has fantastic spicy foliage.

It has grown vigorously, even if I haven't managed a decent picture of it this year.
