Products » Gingers » Torch Gingers (Etlibera elatior)

The torch gingers are a group of gingers that are known for their tall lush dark green foliage and spectacular basal flowers. The foliage ranges from around 3 metres in height in full sun to 5 metres in more shaded areas. Fantastic as a screening plant and/or for creating a shaded walkway, the flowers come out of the ground and are generally around a metre in height creating wonderful splashes of colour on the dark green backdrop.

Torch gingers enjoy a warmer climate flowering and growing well all the way down to the Queensland/NSW border. As with most tropical plants, a nice thick layer of mulch around their base helps to keep their root system warm and aid with moisture retention. Colour ranges from pure white through to the red stemmed red torch where the underside of the foliage and new foliage stems are dark blood red and so are the flowers.
