Ginger Garden at Central Core

August 30, 2011

Nestled adjacent to the National Orchid Garden, the one-hectare Ginger Garden contains more than 250 species of members from the family Zingiberaceae and its relatives. Many have surprisingly interesting plant forms, beautiful leaves and very attractive flowers. You will also find plants such as bananas, heliconias, prayer plants, cannas, and a little known family called the Lowiaceae with vaguely orchid-like flowers. The Ginger Garden has been divided into special zones where one may find gingers organized by themes such as beauty or usefulness, or regions of their origin.
