I'm thinking this is the actual flower and the other is modified sepals or leaves.

Here is a link to an extreme close up. 3 megs.

It is called Curcuma petiolata. The leaves at the top are called bracts.

I knew it was a petiolata, do you know the cultivar? Can't wait for the ones you sent me to bloom!

I don't think there is a cultivar name for this one. It may take some time, some of those were pretty small.
