The leaves on this ginger has lost it's variegation due to it's place in the shade. But it blooms for me each year. The flower is almost iridescent lavender. You can almost see this distinct coloring if your computer screen is at just the right angle. Can anyone ID this??

I agree with C.petiolata...not sure about 'Emperor' though... Hidden Lily (Curcuma petiolata)
