Not edible ginger, this type of tropical ginger stems grow spiral up, aromatic green foliage with purple under side.  Pink flower stems with bamboo/sugar can like obvious knuckle liked joints.  Bright yellow flowers bloom from bright red flower head in mid summer.  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location in moist but well drained soil.  USDA Zones:9-11.  Mature size:4′-6′(H)/(W).  Propagate by seeds/cuttings/bulbs/division.  Thanks for gardener’s sharing!
