The inflorescence starts out as bright yellow and as it gets older and bigger, becomes a blend of red and yellow, eventually becoming all red.The bracts also remain tight, unlike the typical Zingiber spectabile. The inflorescence of this variety lasts a few months! A must-have for any rare plant collector. Although it is a tropical plant it can be grown indoors in colder climates. Beehive Ginger is a herbaceous, perennial plant producing clumps of erect, unbranched, leafy stems, up to 3 m tall, that arise from a fleshy, creeping rhizome. Flowers clusters which look like beehives, are borne on separate lateral shoots, up to 0.5 m in height. Bracts of inflorescence are dull yellow to reddish orange, forming open pouches with incurved margins. Flowers are dull greenish yellow to pale yellow; lip dark reddish brown to maroon, with yellow spots. The leaves of the plant are mostly oblong, tapering to a single point at the tip. The plant is sometimes used locally as a flavouring in food. It is widely grown as an ornamental, valued especially for its attractive flowers. Beehive Ginger is native to Andaman & Nicobar, Java, Malaysia and Thailand. Medicinal uses: Water collected from the bracts of the iflowers is used by the Orang Aslis of the Temuan tribe (Negri Sembilan, Malaysia) to treat conjunctivitis."
