Can anyone help to identify this tropical plant? Location is the Diamond Falls gardens, St. Lucia.





It looks like Etlingera Elatior but the colour is different; all the Etlingera Elatior pics in the DB are the same color. I've tried doing searches on the various Etlingera species listed in the DB, but haven't succeeded in finding it (many of the internet results don't have photos).

Thank you for any help you can offer.
