Etlingera elatior, Red Torch Ginger
Etlingera elatior Red Torch Ginger
This is one tropical plant I can't grow but some friends do grow it in their garden in far north Queensland so I have seen it up close .It is another ginger family plant which forms a huge running clump up to 3 metres tall . It grows in the shade under trees, so to see the flowers you have to walk into a dark cool spot to view the extraordinary flowers .What a marvel of nature!
