I don't know what 'ginger flower' is. Is it powdered dry ginger (might be ginger flour?) which would be the commonly available spice; is it some form of flowers from the ginger plant? or some kind of baking flour with some form of ginger added? Sorry, I'd like to know how it is used.

Hi Susan, Ginger flower, is the flower of a ginger plant. It's an ingredient in Asam Laksa (a Malaysian dish). I believe it is also used in other dishes as well. I have never used it before. But, wanted to try it out.

BGT. thanks for the photo! That looks like a grocer's tray that they're on. Archita, did you find them? They look remarkable!

Yes, Susan, I bought these at the grocers. Mine in the garden don't start coming up until July and they keep coming up for about 6 weeks. Myoga Ginger is not really a flower but the bud next to the ground that will become the flower stalk.

Archita, did you find find your flower-torch ginger?

Sorry, that description sounds quite terrible. It's really a great fresh ginger taste usually eaten raw to accent flavors like in chicken salad, etc.
