White Ginger : สะเลเต

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

White ginger lily (Hedychium coronarium) yields white, beautiful, and freshly scent flowers. I have been familiar with this flowers since I was young because there are plenty of them in northeastern of Thailand. I am glad to see a lot of them here in Puerto Rico too (even though they are considered as alien species here.) In Thailand we call them Swan-like flowers.

ดอกสะเลเต ในภาษาอีสาน หรือดอกมหาหงษ์ เป็นดอกไม้ที่มีกลิ่นหอมเย็น ไม่นึกว่าจะเจอดอกไม้นี้ขึ้นได้งอกงามที่เปอร์โตริโกเช่นกัน อ่านพบว่าต้นกำเนิดจริง ๆ คือเนปาลและอินเดีย (wikipedia)
