There are many stalks of this ginger in bloom. They can grow 6-7 feet tall. Very fragrant.

The scent of ginger is super nice. Great that you can grow it there. I've only seen one with a cream coloured flower in a greenhouse, once. It had a marvelous scent as well. I think that was the regular culinary ginger.

Alas, I have no hummingbirds now. The spring migration has been over for a while and I won't get any birds from the fall migration until about the middle of August.

[mention]SpookyShoe[/mention], I’m surprised you don’t get nesters hanging around for the summer. My female is still around and in fact I’ve seen the male a lot also these last 4-5 weeks.

I have seen posts on on neighborhood app regarding people who have birds over the summer, but very few people say this.
I have never seen birds stay over the summer in my yard and I have lots of plants for them to feast on. I would think the summer birds would choose me.😭

So far this year I've had chickadees, nuthatches and 2 pairs of winter wrens nesting in my yard. I'm rich.
