Ginger is a member of the cana family. It does not tolerate frost and likes a rich moist soil. Grows up to 10 feet high. Propagation is by division of the tubers. It has both medicinal and culinary uses. The old rhizome is the source of ginger powder for culinary use. One effect of the root is to cause forgetfulness, but this is primarily a result of over use.
