I am so excited to have a torch ginger flower, and hope this is a sign of many more to come. As you can see the flower comes out at the base of the long arching leaves. They go right up into the lychee tree - about 15ft! Look how little it looks right at the base of the huge leaves! they normally do have a longer stem.
ebunmalaykadazangirls can be used to added to laksa. I wont be eating mine though - too busy admiring it.
Gardening gone wild. the theme is to fill the frame, and that is what this little beauty does I think.
I cant say that I enjoy the heat and humidity of the wet season, but I sure do enjoy the beauty it brings to my garden!
