The Problem


Kahili ginger is a problem in warmer areas, especially in native forests where it often grows from pieces dumped by gardeners. Its seeds can also be spread by birds. Ginger is a perennial plant with fleshy green leaves that grows up to 2 metres tall. Flowers appear at the top of the stems in late summer and autumn, follwed by the bird-attracting red seeds. The flowers have a delightful perfume.

Plant bases develop thick rhizomes that spread to smother native plants. The waxy leave are resistant to herbicide but good results can be obtained by applying herbicide to freshly cut stems. Remove dead flowers to prevent seed formation.
