So where is the V they are talking about?

Gainesville, FL

I don't name them, kenboy I just grow them

Big Sandy, TX(Zone 8a)

I have heard they call it Pink V because somewhere in the flower it makes a V. Just wondering if you have seen it?

Gainesville, FL

Actually I have never looked, LOL

Miami, FL

The V has to do with the shape of the cane's actually, it had nothing to do with the flower itself.

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!

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 9a)

does this really cool looking ginger have a name?

WOW! Incredible pictures, everyone!

Candela, how do you treat your gingers to get a second set of flowers? That's awesome!

Miami, FL(Zone 10a)

rob this is the first set of flowers in july they all dried up so i cut them back to the ground. there were already babies coming up around them so i am not sure if by cutting the older ones it gave them more energy or not.

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.

Hattiesburg, MS(Zone 8a)

No smell just beauty

Tampa, FL(Zone 10a)

I was focusing on the coleus, using the ginger as a background plant....it was taken Aug 27th in SF CA>
