Also knwon as Spiral Ginger. Tall flowering plant. Flowers large, and attract various insects.
Thank you so much bayucca. It's probably the same species and native to Southeast Asia (well, according to wiki).I see it being grown in many places here in Sabah; and many a times, I would stop short a while to admire its beauty.
I know this beautiful flower from Costa Rica: Crepe ginger (Cheilocostus speciosus). But I think you might have other species in Malaysia. I am sure somebody can help with the exact species from your area.
