Or maybe

Ginger, Red Button Ginger, Dwarf French Kiss
Costus woodsonii

It doesn't have the yellow to it like the Costus barbatus. Could it be Spiral ginger Costus pulverulentus ?

Look at Red Button in the plant file.

Sunny, how tall is the plant? What about leaf arrangement? and, can you take a close up of the bloom spike...those will all make it easier to give you a more positive ID

This picture might be a better one for you. It's been a while since I took these photos and I am trying to get them labeled.

This is a closeup although it isn't very sharp.

Sunny, judging by size, Kenboy just may have pegged your plant

Costus woodsonii short form.

This one is rated zone 9-10 and did not come back for me. If I get a chance I may try it again. It is a good bloomer and the blooms really show up, not all Costus do that.

Beautiful Ginger SunnyTX!
