Flowers seen on the first Sunday of 2010

Etlingera elatior, Torch Ginger thinking no one would seek it out in the near nooday sun.

Water plant thriving and rewarding us with this huge flower.

Purple banana flowers are common, this one is is of a rich orange hue.

Heliconia looking like an Emperor and...

...his consort.

Tapeinochilus ananassae - Giant Spiral Ginger, Indonesian Wax Ginger. One of the few times I see buds peeking out from the bracts.

Curcuma (Ginger), as usual so alluring.
