Striped Narrow Leaf Ginger is a species of flowering plants in the ginger family, native to a region from the Bismarck Archipelago in the Solomon Islands. They are evergreen rhizomatous soft-wooded perennial cultivated as ornamental plants. Striped Narrow Leaf Ginger are plants of forest understory habitat in hot and moist climate all year round.

The tall shoots of green and white striped foliage make this an attractive plant, but the sun-scorch on many of the leaves indicates that this plant should best be grown under partially shaded conditions. The terminal inflorescence is a pink-red color and is not especially showy, compared with other species of Alpinia.

This plant is among the most attractive and commonly grown species of this genus and is cultivated mainly for its beautiful and striking foliage.
