I had the name of this one once but lost it. I believe it is kind of rare. I have a pic of the bloom and will post asap.
Difficult to propogate, about 24 inches tall.
Thanks

I don't know a thing about Costus but it reminds me a bit of this one, C. erythrophyllus: http://www.natureloveyou.sg/Co...

When googling I found this list from the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens but haven't had a chance to look through them all: http://www.htbg.com/search.php...
