Red Ginger Lily

This plant has other names: Torch Ginger, Ginger Flower, Torch Lily or Wild Ginger. Indonesian people call it Honje or Kecombrang (source:Wikipedia).

The showy pink flowers are used in decorative arrangements while the flower buds are an important ingredient in some Indonesia traditional food.
This flower located in my neighbor’s yard; I didn’t capture it from a short distance.

Sem duvida uma das flores mais lindas do mundo!
Exótica e de cores fortes, só não sabia que era comestível...
Aqui no Brasil ela é conhecida com Bastão-do-imperador.
Grata pela bela imagem!!!
Feliz semana✽
