Red Button Ginger or Indian Ginger
About Plant- Red Button Ginger (Costus woodsonii) makes a bold addition to the garden. Learn to grow and care for this herbaceous evergreen and watch its glossy, green, oval-shaped foliage spiral around proud, upright stems. Also called Indian Head Ginger, Spiral Ginger, Red Cane Ginger, or Scarlet Spiral Flag, bright ruby red spiky cones produce orange flag-like flowers, each less than one inch in size, with a barely visible lower yellow lip.
