SOLVED: Anyone Know This Ginger?

Wesley Chapel, FL(Zone 9a)

I planted it late in the season, and never saw it flower. Can't remember what it is.

As you can see, each leaf has a dark vein running down it's center.

How about this. Red Leaf Spice Ginger, Curcuma zedoaria http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/58846/index.html

Ilima - sure looks like it, doesn't it? I suspected the plant might be from some curcuma rhizomes I had bought. Thanks for your help.

Also sometimes called "Bicolor Wonder". Which suits it!
