Alpinia purpurata 'Pink Standard'
29th June 2008
New to me this year (still not unpacked in this picture). It is a tropical species, and does not like cold weather, but I am hoping that if it is vigorous
I can keep it going without too much of a setback in the winter by bringing it indoors.
This is the pink flowered form of a variable species, and 'standard' in the sense that it is not one of the many dwarf varieties.
