Yeah Tom Zingiber spectabilis, beehive ginger, we’ll picked.
Asher, the rings are bracts, the flowers come out sporadically from them.
I planted this one two years ago. They’re very tropical, they love heat, water and humidity. Since planting it has been dry, dry dry. It’s been all I could do to keep it alive so seeing it flower was very rewarding.
Tom, I’ve got 3 lily pillies at my place. One has a beautiful soft pink flower.
Not flowering at the moment and I’m not sure if I’ve got any pics.
I always nibble on the fruits when I’m watering the garden.
Asher we don’t need to make this shit up!
The fruits are not to everybody’s liking.
They’re quite sour. It’s a flavour I love but only in small doses.
I’m thinking a couple of them floating in your gin might be nice.
