Etlingera mangayi is a collector's ginger or a talking piece, not so much a great landscaping plant. Native to Southern Thailand and Malaysia this unusual etlingera prefers a tropical climate. It is relatively small compared to Etlingera elatitor and the flowers are not as showy. They appear in summer and look like tight little pink balls.
