Alpinia caerulea, commonly known as native ginger or in the case of the subspecies from the Atherton Tableland red back ginger, is an under storey perennial herb to 3 m

The rhizome may be used, like other ginger roots, in savory dishes, desserts, jams, marmalade's, candies and tea, the flavour is similar to gangalal . Though the seeds should not be eaten, the berries have a pleasant lemony ginger flavour and can be consumed.The stunning red backed foliage makes this plant a great houseplant or plant outside in a frost free, sheltered, shady spot in moist fertile soil.
