What is Spiralis ginger
Spiralis ginger or Costus spiralis (scientific name: Costus spiralis 'Strawberry Bud') is a native of Brazil and is a large perennial or shrub of the family Costaceae. Spiralis ginger is called because the leaves attached to the stem are spiral. Stock height is about 2 m. Leaves are elliptical or wide lanceolate, with leaf edges all over and leaves in a spiral. The inflorescence is a cranial flower, the one that looks like a flower is a bract, and it is well reddish red. The actual flower is a small yellow tubular flower that emerges from the bract. In the field, flowers bloom all year round.
