    Default Red Ginger Plant

    This huge red ginger plant dominates this neglected portion of my late grandma's garden. Caladiums and other large foliaged plants cover the ground.

    Overhead, an old mango tree bears unripe fruit.

    Ginger plants as weeds???? Strange thought for me Jordan. Aside from being just pretty, it is also popular in the cut flower industry in my country. Oh well. I hope they reclassify it.

    WOW! That is just beautiful!
    All I could hope is that my grandchildren will appreciate my garden when I'm gone.

    That is an amazingly beautiful and healthy Ginger !! Jordan the NZ government also classifies foreigners as weeds LOL, A friend of mine will be moving to Wellington from Germany and she has to go through a long process of customs, regulations and quarantine (for her belongings and cats) before she is finally accepted lol. I know they have to make sure pests and invasive species do not land there, but the most invasive species (humans) are already there with the other most dangerous species (from invasion point of view) rats, mice, cats, dogs pigs and goats. I don't see any point to it hehe.

    Beautiful Ginger plant. I have a small ginger plant (a bit different than the one you post) that we grew from seed. Love the big dark leaves and pink flowers.

    cheers,
    BD
