Today's Flower #137: Taipei Botanical Garden

Even in the most dull season, I can always count on to find some colorful flowers in the Ginger Family (Zingiberaceae) section of the Taipei Botanical Garden.  Not all the colorful flowers in this section are from the Ginger family.  This is Red Heliconia (紅鳥蕉Heliconia psittacorum Sessé & Moc. of the Strelitziaceae Family.

This Ornamental red banana (指天蕉Musa uranoacopos Lour. is also from the Strelitziaceae Family.

Here is the flower of Turmeric (薑黃Curcuma zedoaria (Berg.) Rosc.  It is from the Ginger Family.
