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.
