Dichorisandra (Blue Ginger) & Palisota

Blue Ginger and Palisota are small genera within the Commelinaceae and native of Central and South America (Dichosandra), respectively tropical Africa (Palisota). They are mostly evergreen to herbaceous perennials with underground rhizomes. Dichorisandra species have most ornamental, tall stalks and showy bluish-violet flowers, whereas African Palisota species usually make a basal leave rosette and short-stalked flowering spikes followed by bright colored berries. All are easily grown in large pots or containers in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny (winter) to partially shaded (summer) spot. In winter keep plants slightly drier at a minimum of some 20°C. Several species will go dormant in winter and resprout in spring.
Sow flat at minimum of some 20°C throughout the year in any well drained, humus rich substrate in full sun.
