  • The order Zingerberales is made up of eight plant families, these are:
  • Musaceae (the bananas)
  • Strelitziaceae (the birds-of-paradise)
  • Lowiaceae
  • Heliconiaceae (the heliconias)
  • Zingiberaceae (the gingers)
  • Costaceae (costus)
  • Cannaceae (the cannas)
  • Marantaceae (the prayer plants)
  • Many of the plants in the Zingerberales are very important in landscaping and in the cut-flower industry.

Heliconia metallica

Canna sp.

Canna Lilly

Calathea sp.

Prayer PLant

Cannas add a burst of colour to any landscape

Plants in the genus Calathea in the Marantaceae, are called “Prayer Plants” because they raise their leaves towards the sky at night.Calatheas, with their beautiful foliage and high shade tolerance, also make great indoor plants.

Heliconias are grown mainly for their colorful bracts (not their small flowers within the bract)..Several heliconias flower throughout the year. Heliconia blooms may last more than two weeks in floral arrangements.

Alpinia purpurata

Red Ginger

Etlingera elatior

Musa ornata

Alpinia zerumbet
