Beehive ginger

By ColleenA
Another type of ginger√‚ís difficult to find a more showy and unusual tropical flower than the beehive ginger.....Zingiber spectabile. The cone shaped bracts are borne throughout the growing season thrives in warm frost free climates.
Many thanks for your votes comments and user awards all much appreciated
Australia is still in a terrible state with fires expecting to get worse tomorrow and Saturday. To put it in perspective...The smoke is now as wide as the whole of Europe and New Zealand is blanketed in smoke and ash, their Glaciers have turned brown. I am so thankful to be safe in Melbourne and not travelling within Australia.

Very lovely, Colleen. It looks like's been made like those wicker baskets! 👍😁
We hear, and see, on TV about the bush fires every time the news comes on, it's really terrible out there. I always think and hope too that it's safe where you are 😟
A Very Happy New Year to you 👍
