Common Name: Red ginger
Botanical Name:Alpinia purpurata
This plant is Malaysian in origin but grows in places around the world like Hawaii, Panama, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and many more. It is more of a cone than a flower, but the only true flower is on the very top of the cone and is white. It is known for its deep pink plumes, something that can add an exotic sense in our landscapes. It is not called the ‘Jungle king’ for nothing.
