White Torch Ginger

We had a nice surprise while picking flowers out in the “deep jungle” this morning and noticed the rare White Torch Ginger blooming – it’s beautiful !

Torch Gingers belong to the “Zingiberaceae” family. Gingers are not native to Hawaii, but were imported here from Malaysia. In Asia they are used for medicine and in curries.

Kalani Tropicals has Red, Pink, and White Torch, Tulip Torch, and Yamamoto Pink Torch Gingers in our collection. When you receive a tropical flower arrangement, you may find one of them in your bouquet!
