It grows directly out of the ground .
Immature Tsuga heterophylla cone?
Sorry Weekend Gardener ,
Keep trying .
What you see in the Picture Is growing on a stem 5 incnes above the ground .
Not a conifer .
Some sort of bulb flowergetting ready to grow upward and outward..... Galtonia???
Or a seed pod of a Calla Lily developing.
Nope I don't think I am even close. I will say belonging to a bulb plant.
Ginger where on earth do you get this stuff?
Liz, 'bulb flowergetting ready to grow upward and outward.'
Is right. But what plant is it .
You know the wood eating Fungus ?
Well it grows less than 300 mm from them .
And that is in my vege garden .
So this is little ??? if it is only 300 mm from the fungus which was tiny??. I know I am going to kick myself when this is solved. It looks familiar but.......
Could it be your namesake? A ginger inflorescence in bud?
I think you have it. Look at this half way down the page
Ginger flower (ornamental)
If this is it that would be why it looks familiar as I have stacks of this stuff.
Michael F , You are right again .
Yes Liz ! you were very close .
You even mentioned Ginger.
But you were referring to me . lol
That same vege Patch still has some surprises in it .
No Michael mentioned Ginger I went and looked up and found pic and decided he was right. This ginger is it usable. I only have it for flowers and holding the paddock slope back from going down the neighbours. I love the plant and its perfume. When we moved in we did find some bottles of ginger beer and wondered then if that is what they were using it for
P.S you are going to have to do better to stump Michael
Yes Liz .
Mine is Edible Green Ginger.
I also have the varigated ginger .
But it dosen`t flower like this .
I think I`ve got Michael on this latest one though .
