This ginger is orange/apricot with varigated leaves and the scent is lovely. I have had it for a couple of years and this is the first time it has bloomed.

I'm not sure but it sure is pretty. I love the varigated leaves as well as the flower color! :)

Forgive me Bob, I seen your post and only looked at the bloom, I did not read what you wrote, or look at the variegation. Yes it must be Dr. Moy, it is the only variegated Hedychium that has been around for very long. Just looking at the it is just too hard to ID, there are so many out there today.

I have something similar to that but the leaves are not variegated... may be a 'pink V'? It is so tall, I had to bend it down in order to take a picture.
