There are many species of gingers in the nursery trade, but none more spectacular than the Torch Ginger. Botanical name, Etlingera elatior, the foliage is dark green with large wide leaves and canes that reach 6-9 feet. The flowers emerge from separate stalks and reach 3-4 feet in height and resemble a torch. Pink or pinkish red is the most common color. However, there is a pure white which is equally spectacular.
Richard Lyons Nursery has both colors in stock.
