This ginger is a must in exotic gardening. The foliage of Costus comosus var. bakeri is dark green and fuzzy underneath. The long red inflorescences are complimented with bright yellow tubular flowers. It is a clumping (not spreading!) ginger that normally bloom at eye-level.

This species was wrongly identified as Costus barbatus for decades, and it is still often seen in the horticoltural trade with this name.
