In the 8 years I've lived in South Carolina, I've only seen this once and it was at Brookgreen Gardens in Murrells Inlet, SC. And as many times as I've been there, this one time is still the only time I've seen it growing there. Not sure if it was brought in just to show and didn't make it or what. It looks like it was good for a while to be this big and flowering. I'm also interested in knowing about the plant with the green and white leaves if possible too. Thank you for any and all help!!

That stripy spiral arranged leaves is Costus. Maybe Costus speciosus variegatus Smiling

Yup, it is XiaoLong. Just Binged it. And that has a white flower to it. To bad it wasn't blooming when I took this photo. Hopefully I'll find it again. Thank you so much!!

The plant database here would be a more reliable source for finding images that correctly connect with a plant name, though some entries have a wider selection of various images than others, at any given moment. It's very active with new pics added daily.:
