- Zingiber mioga 'White Arrow'
- Japanese ginger
A perennial ginger in Québec, whose stalks, flower buds and flowers are eaten rather than the rhizome. White Arrow is distinguished by a wonderful lanceolate green foliage with white markings. A native of East Asia, it is hardy to zone 4, with a good snow covering, but should be protected in the south of the province. Grows in the shade or semi-shade in rich humus-bearing, well-drained soil.
