Been absent at Ruby Tuesday for quite awhile. For a comeback, let me share this vibrant ginger flower with you. Took these photos at the garden in Eastwood when I took my 4-year old nephew and Fritz to watch the dancing fountain. It rained earlier that afternoon---droplets of rain still cling to the petals. I was delighted when I saw this ginger flower...my grandmother had this plant in her garden and I used to bring the flowers to school.
Ginger is a rhizome of the perennial herb which is indigenous to the South west coast of India and the Malabar coast of the state of Kerala. Gingers, a multifaceted herb,enjoy a special position in the botanical kingdom with their elegance in form, texture, sparkling color, and amazing symmetry. The word ginger conjures up images of an exotic oriental food flavoring; however, edible ginger - Zingiber officinale, is only one of approximately 1,300 species of the very diverse Zingiberaceae family.

I eat ginger root a lot; I had no idea there are many varieties of ginger flowers. Vibrant.
The red here is incredible. I have grown Ginger but never managed to get it to bloom
