Welcome amitray! I hope you join us often with pictures such as this. I agree with LariAnn...Dancing Girl. I often get my gingers mixed up...but this one is a stand-out. Do you find that the other gingers only flower at the onset of the rains? Mine do. I can barely keep them alive during the windy season, but the rains begin and my garden is filled with wonderful scents.
I ordered from a garden nearby Globba winterii. Maybe next week I will have good news, so I can go to get it.
Islandshari The first place where I saw a Globba was in Kwajalein. My neighboord Vicky Santucci had a specimen in her garden (yellow flowers). As I told you we were 472B. I guess some people in Kwajalein still have parts of the original plant that Vicky had in her place.
Actually, I think mine came from her original plant! What a small, wonderful world we live in. I remember discussions when I picked it up, and the folks were talking about a "Vicky"...That's one of the nice things about Kwaj...the plants manage to get passed around to someone who will love them, even when the original owner leaves the island. My friend Bruce Sherrill had a huge orchid growing in a garbage can and I see bits and pieces of orchids just like it everywhere...but the big one is no where to be found. It makes me feel good that his orchid is still here - giving joy to many other people through babies and cuttings.
