Lavender Ginger

Kim has cultivated an impressive gardens around the house. The newest garden (she finished it a couple of months ago) is a tropical garden at the side of house visible from the dining room. Its filled with many tropical plans including large birds of paradise, various gingers, orchids and many other varieties whose names I don't know.

A few months ago, Kim received as a gift several ginger seedlings from Hawaii. I think she has planted several of them in the tropical garden. This lavender ginger (which some have also called pink ginger) is one of the first larger flowers I've noticed. I intend to photograph as much of the plants in the coming months in small batches.
