....at least I think it's a ginger. About 4' tall very straight stalk with narrow leaves. Red-orange bloom.
Thumb of 2016-03-16/LynneHTx/98e775
The bloom on this plant is at the top of the stalk unlike shampoo ginger with the bloom on a separate stalk near the base of the plant.
Thanks

One of the Hedychium coccineum I think.
