Description: From one of our collection gathered from eastern Nepal on our 1995 expedition a curious and seldom seen member of the ginger family. Found growing at fairly high altitude within the forest where it had formed a small colony of slender upright stems to 1.5m tall, clothed in large glossy Hedychium-styled leaves. With upright racemes only pendant terminally of unusual yellow arrow-shaped flowers with exceptionally long curved styles, in succession on short stalks. Soon after transforming to small bulbils which drop to the ground and soon form a colony. Sun or shade in humus rich well drained soil, protect in cold areas.
