In Malaysia, we call it bunga kantan. Other malay/Indonesian names include bunga bakung api, mawar porselen, bunga lilin Filipina and obor raja.
It makes a wonderful landscaping plant.
The pink torch ginger is a common plant found in tropical Malaysia. You can see in along the roads in villages, jungle fringes and it grows wild in our rainforest jungles.
My first experience in growing the bunga kantan can be found here in my June 19 post.
I'm sorry for the late posting due to my busy schedule.
Wishing you all a great and wonderful weekend.
To all my American Friends,
HAPPY THANGSGIVING !
