Exotic And Tropical Alpinia Purpurata

Alpinia Purpurata


I love the Alpinia Purpurata it was always one of my favorite tropical flowers becaue of the colors and textures were very alluring. The different types and names of this tropical flower are alpinia zerumbet, alpinia officinarum, alpinia galanga, alpinia vittata and alpinia luteocarpa.

These Beautifully exotic flowers grow in clusters on long stems and really stand out. These exotic flowering plants are mostly recognized in tropical floral arrangements like most exotic flowers they really stand apart form most others.

If you look at most peoples gardens you will almost never find them growing in common gardens.

The alpinia elatior red ginger you will see all over the place in Hawaii and other tropical areas.

Most don't know that it is the national flower in beautiful Samoa, where I have many friends from the beautiful island. My friends say that this flowers is called Teuila and it can be found growing everywhere.

Florida has very similar tropical conditions temperatures that don’t get below 40 so this makes the growing conditions perfect for this beautiful flower and is why it’s grown abundantly there.

With the Alpinia growing it the shade is what’s best for this beautiful flower with lots of humidity and moisture, although it can tolerate full sun in some areas just not all day. It loves to be watered often.

Its two varieties are called Jungle King and Jungle Queen.
