Ginger - Costus sp

A flower fairy dabbled with paints
from nature's store of colours
She lined the petals with brown and orange
then flew away in search of others
to light and delight
our senses with her artistic endeavours
I believe, from my reference of the 1001 Garden Plants in Singapore, that this flower belongs to the Costus malortieanus.
