Description

Etlingera elatior - Porcelain Rose

This listing is for 10 seeds.

This is a ginger native to south east Asia and has a large number of common names including Torch Ginger, Red Ginger Lily and Philippines Wax Flower (to list only a few). It grows from an underground rhizome as is the case with most members of the ginger family and the sword-like leave are borne along gracefully arching stems. The flowers arise on separate stems from the rhizomes to an eventual height of up to 1 metre.

It will rapidly form a clump when grown in a pot and these can be divided every 2 - 3 years as necessary. The spectacular flowers form once the the plant is in full leaf and they make an interesting cut flower as well as looking stunning if left to mature on the plant. The flowers are very long lived, lasting many weeks and shading from cerise through to pale rose pink as it ages and expands.

It is not hardy, coming from the tropics and at a relatively low level, but if grown in a pot it can be placed out side in the summer or grown in a conservatory year round. Sure to be a talking piece wherever it is grown. The buds, seeds and leaves are all used in cooking, where they impart a sour but spicy flavour.

Full growing instructions can be found in my shop, the link to this on my Me page.
