Torch Ginger's are really beautiful! They wouldn't withstand the winters here on the east coast but they would grow beautifully over on the SW coast of Florida where Hetty lives!
edited to say: Unless Florida continues to have freezing winters like the one we had this year! It even got very cold down in the southern part of the state! I sure hope I never see such a cold winter here again in my lifetime! I can' take one or two nights in the 30's but we had many nights in the mid 20's!!
