Myoga Japanese Ginger (Zingiber mioga)

Myoga Ginger is not cultivated for its rhizome. Instead, Myoga is grown for its fleshy rose-and-white flower buds. They are firm and crisp, and a seasonal delicacy in Japan and Korea. Myoga is also a cold tolerant ginger, a Japanese native plant grown for its edible flower buds. It is a herbaceous, deciduous perennial that is best grown in partial shade where soils are moist. Protect from frosts and may be grown indoors. New shoots and flower buds can be eaten raw or sautéed. Perfect replacement for the Flower Torch Ginger!

The same genus as ginger but, unlike true ginger, its roots are not edible. The shoots and buds of this plant, also known as myoga ginger, are edible and can be used like a herb in cooking. Japanese ginger uses aren’t limited to food, though; this pretty perennial can also add visual interest to the garden.

Plant Care

  • Soil: Prefers moist, well-drained soil rich in organic matter with a slightly acidic pH.
  • Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during the growing season.
  • Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 15°C and 25°C. Mulch heavily to protect rhizomes in colder climates.
  • Light: Partial shade is ideal, as full sun can scorch the leaves.
  • Fertilising: Use a balanced fertilizer like 10-10-10 every two months during the growing season to encourage lush growth.
  • Pruning: Not typically necessary, but remove old flower stalks and dead foliage to keep the plant tidy.
  • Mulching: Apply a thick layer of organic mulch to retain moisture and protect the rhizomes.
  • Pest Control: Watch for slugs and snails that can damage young shoots. Use organic slug and snail control methods.
  • Flowering and Fruiting: Rarely flowers; cultivated mainly for its flavorful shoots and rhizomes.
  • Potting: Can be grown in containers, ensuring they are large enough to accommodate the spreading rhizomes.
  • Feeding Regime: Regular feeding during the growing season supports the development of shoots and rhizomes.


We ship our plants and garden supplies throughout New Zealand. Due to the increased costs of shipping and packaging, we now apply a minimal delivery charge. After offering free shipping for three consecutive years, we find it necessary to adjust this policy to align with current market conditions. However, we have lowered our prices to help offset this change.

Please note, we do not ship plants or garden supplies internationally from New Zealand. We do export plants and tissue culture materials from our overseas nursery, which requires a minimum order. Please contact us at hello@exoticanz.com to discuss your specific requirements.

Delivery

  • Our plants are available for shipment throughout the year, depending on stock levels. Typical delivery times range from 5 to 7 business days, although they can take up to 10 business days depending on the destination.
  • We take extra care in packaging; most of our plants are secured in bespoke inserts and shipped in individual boxes to ensure they arrive undamaged.
  • Deliveries are scheduled once a week, typically on Monday. If you place your order over the weekend, we aim to dispatch your plants on the following Monday. This scheduling allows our team to prepare your order thoroughly and ensures the courier has sufficient time to deliver your plants safely, avoiding any unnecessary delays over the weekend.
  • All orders are shipped via courier track and trace service (not signature required)
  • We cannot deliver to PO Box addresses.
  • If you have a rural address, please contact us beforehand to discuss the best delivery options and avoid any potential issues.

Additional Delivery Information

  • We dispatch our plants year-round, as most are shipped with soil. During the winter months, we closely monitor weather conditions and may temporarily delay shipments if the weather is particularly severe. Our packing process includes adding insulation when necessary to protect the plants against temperature extremes.
  • In summer, we ensure that plants are thoroughly watered before they leave our nursery. Occasionally, we may need to ship plants bare-rooted, particularly when they cannot be comfortably re-potted into smaller packaging for shipping. We will always discuss this with you in advance if your plant needs to be shipped in this manner.
  • It's important to note that shipping can be a stressful experience for plants, often due to spending several days in a dark, confined space. While most plants withstand this with little to no stress, some may experience leaf drop. However, they generally recover quickly with some additional care, including proper watering and gradual reintroduction to light after arrival.
