Hedychium Pink V has started blooming. One of my faves.
I have heard they call it Pink V because somewhere in the flower it makes a V. Just wondering if you have seen it?
The V has to do with the shape of the cane's actually, it had nothing to do with the flower itself.
received as Elizabeth but sure looks a lot like Gina's Pink V in the first post
Dan - that is one symmetrical bloom. Lovely color.
Donna - I can't believe your Dr. Moy is blooming already. Mines have never bloomed in the 5 years that I have had them. I transplanted a few to a sunnier spot and keeping my fingers crossed for at least one bloom this year.
Wild huh! I had received a section of this ginger from a friend of mine basically because it had "cool" foliage. Never new this is what it would grow to be!
does this really cool looking ginger have a name?
Thanks I may have to see about getting some.
They are def. beautiful specimens! I currently only have this and my Zingiber Zerumbet (Shampoo Ginger) but I would like to acquire some more gingers as well!
WOW! Incredible pictures, everyone!
Candela, how do you treat your gingers to get a second set of flowers? That's awesome!
roberta/bward i can only imagine the smell. i never thought of kelp. a neighbor goes to starbucks and gets all their coffee grinds for free and puts them all over her gardenias and they are incredible.
