    Hmm, that's very interesting.

    Are the signs in the botanic gardens to help identify this?
  • David de Groot said:
    It might might be related to another form of ginger, as there was a ginger like plant quite close-by.
  • David de Groot said:
    There are, but alas not where this was growing. And I've noticed that the signage seems to be poorly maintained too. It's more of a large park now (Queen's Park to be precise) as the official Botanic Gardens (at least the well maintained one) is at Mt Coot-tha since about 1980 or so, due to something like 6 major floods inundating the city botanic gardens from 1880 - 1974.
