Costus amazonicus variegata

A ginger from South America. Very popular in Hawaii and Florida. The actual name is C. arabicus variegata. Mislabeled almost everywhere. Spiraling stems rise with a strong white variegation and topped with green and white cone like flowers. Prefers shade, moist soil and lots of water. Only a light front is tolerated. Even if tops die back, leave in the ground and may re-sprout from the roots. May grow up to 8' tall, usually much less, under 3'. Grows in a clump, best in rich highly organic soil with regular moisture. Easy to grow, can even be propagated from cuttings.
