little about Globbas
The Globbas are my favorite ginger plants. The pendant blooms
on the Globba look so exotic and delicate they take my breathe
away. Indeed, some are called dragons and I can see why since
the bracts on some are reminiscent of Chinese dragons. Still
others refer to them as dancing ladies and the small yellow
flowers remind me of a ballerina.
Despite being my favorite ginger and
all the care I give them, Globbas account for the highest
mortalities in my garden. In
fact I can’t think of a single Ginger species suitable
for my area that I have lost except for Globbas.
My garden lies beneath the canopies of pecan
trees, creating an ideal light situation for Globbas and other
Still, they are my favorites. I am always
looking for new Globbas I haven’t acquired.
