I live at the base of Mt Gravatt mountain in Brisbane. Part of Toohey Forest . A native habitat of flora & fauna. My garden is my peace. View is too.
#mealybug #sapsuckers #infested brought in by #ants #brazilianblueginger check out how big they are you can see their legs. Time for a chop and bin.
Now it’s rained everything’s come out for a feed 💩
@nej I always think of you when it comes to this. I was confused between native and Brazilian and you clarified it for me
I love this one, it's a beauty
#bluebrazilianginger #beefood as it’s #purple
That's a lovely colour 💜💜💜
I have a blue ginger plant too. So pretty. I was lucky to stumble across one out of the blue. I had been looking for one initially after my aunt passed away. Blue ginger was her favourite flower
Looking beautiful. Mine hasn't budded up yet.
#bluebrazilianginger new shoots
My favourite plant.
#bee coming in for landing on #bluebrazilianginger
Great timing & beautiful plant 😍
It’s so easy to grow in shade. @jeatacake
Got a fair bit of shade here, but not the Brazilian warmth! 😀
@cyndi sure is. Blooms for ages
Does it have a scent?
Oh boy that is fantastic!
Took me awhile to find bee🐝 but I got him, lovely ginger grate pic sussanah
Beautiful. The blue banded bees love em
@cyndi no unfortunately. Looks like it should have one hey.
@nej @columbiariver @karmey thanks Laura and Nej. I took a shot of native ginger last year with a blue banded bee buzzing. You id for me. Legend.

This looks awesome 😀
@richard.spicer.7906 @gjones dead easy to grow here. Look it’s got rain on it. Yay✨😍
After your hot weather, I'm sure the rain is definitely refreshing and needed.

@gauravsh6 I cut this down to ground September. 3 mths later........

@Joan323 thanks Joan. Well suited to my sub tropical climate. The flowers are just starting to bloom.
🌺I love all the gingers.. flowers are all so lovely..
#sussanah love blue Ginger.
@rosegardengirl the last pic when you swipe is really blue hey!
Wow.. I can’t remember seeing that one before Sussanah.. beautiful..
@Sussanah @brightcolours I think this one is Brazilian blue ginger not alpinia Caerulea
I'll have to double check. The blue one might be from mum and dad's place. @nej @brightcolours
Is it the native one? Or this one: http://www.burkesbackyard.com.au/fact-sheets/in-the-garden/flowering-plants-shrubs/blue-ginger/#.WCahgWUnGrU
Yes it's #blueginger #dichorisandrathyrsiflora
Yes Katie it's the same one as on burkes backyard @brightcolours
Lovely blue colour!
@gjones @karmey @brightcolours I always thought it was native ginger. No idea why I called it Brazilian.
