    Angel this Ginger is spectacular. I have a couple large Hedychium Ginger's in my greenhouse, but nothing quite this fine and exotic. Even the leaves are more handsome. AL

    HI Randy. Ginger, especially the torch ginger (I posted it in another thread), requires much space. But nothing beats ginger if you want an exotic look for your garden.

    Thanks Zainal. It's not only beautiful, but also it requires no care at all. Nobody waters this plant, nor trims it. It takes care of itself. ;-)

    Thanks Al. It has overtaken the bird of paradise which was growing beside it some years ago. Yes, the foliage look nice especially in large flower arrangements. There's also a pink variety.

    Thanks as always Cathy for your appreciation. That ginger is truly a "no fuss" since it requires practically no care.

    Thanks Yew for the scientific name. Yes, beautiful it is. Nobody has tended this part of the garden for years except for some minimal weeding. We just let nature take its course. I guess nature is a better gardener and landscape artist that any of us.

    Thanks Bruce. There's another variety with light pink flowers. I'm sure you'll love that one too.

    Well, one can never get too careful these days Amey. It's just such a hassle sometimes.
