Red Ginger flower looks like the bloom, but the true flower is the small white flower on top. A clump forming ginger with red spikes for flowers. It looks very beautiful against the shiny green leaves. Flowers get bigger with time. They are great cut and are famous in tropical flower arrangements. Like most gingers, the plant must be kept warm. It grows up to 9' tall and develops into large clumps. There are 2 (two) varieties: the red - (Jungle king) and the pink one (Jungle queen).
