(2m **RfAbcD) Costus potierae. This is an interesting clumping Ginger with very unusual white and golden marked flowers. In summer a single flower erupts from under each scale on its weird round green cone. White flower heads, marked in gold. Native to the rainforests of North Queensland it is a shade lover and does particularly well indoors as well as out in the garden or rockery or in a tub. Foliage makes an attractive feature. Likes a well composted position and moisture. Most of the Gingers can be cut back prior to their spring flush when they reshoot vigorously off a strong rhizome. Will grow in warm temperate areas. Shade or part sun.
