Zingiberaceae (ginger family)
 

    The Zingiberaceae is the largest family of the order Zingiberales, with with approximately 50 genera and over 1,000 species.  Gingers are found throughout the tropics, but are especially abundant in Southeast Asia.

    Gingers are distinguished by the presence of a labellum, formed by the fusion of two sterile stamens, and by the presence of essential oils in their tissues.  They are commonly used as ornamentals, as spices, and for their medicinal properties.
