Hi GCSers,

I was a Sanam Luang 2 market a couple of weeks ago and I saw these really stunning gingers. They are not quite as tall as torch gingers but still have an impressive height. The leaves were a little more curved and not at all like torch ginger. But the flowering habit was similar in that individual flowering stalks emerge from the ground.

I have no idea what species it is. Can anyone help?

Cheers,
K

Spiral growth of the leaves, reminds me of a costus



Just sharing some pics of Sanam Luang 2 Market. It is like Chatuchak without the tourists (except for me!).
