Absolutely love to get in the garden when I can. Love birds, fish and plants. I live in the heart of Sydney suburbia on an average block of land

We get a little more than a light frost. Maybe like -10 to 0c give or take for about 2 months. Little to no snow

This one is a true ginger unlike my blue Brazilian ginger which is related to wandering dew. This one is evergreen with nice foliage and beautiful flowers in spring. Mine has grown quite large in only a few years. I think its time to divide it.

@nej what a spectacular bloom! These ginger plants are "something else " -- pity the flowers fade so soon 😒

@whitesusan yes the blooms are a bit ephemeral but there's a good succession of them
