I understand the pups But what my worry is is that the ginger may wrap around the Banana and kill it . and may take up all the goods out of the ground .Tammy

I'm trying to figure out how tulips fit in with all those tropicals. We can grow a tulip here in Florida for, oh, maybe 5 minutes in February. Then its too hot and they keel over.

I don't think your gingers being planted near your bananas will have any negative effect on either plant. I plant gingers, bromeliads, different aroids, herbs like basil, fennel and mint and all sorts of other plants around the bases of my bananas and it is never an issue.

Are you thinking of standard white-blooming or red-blooming Zingibers? Because if you want something really unique, check out Shell Ginger (Alpinia zerumbet) - edible and very nifty flowers.
