Tropicanna, Its very close, but the new shoots form differently. The second pic is a shot of a newly forming stalk, and out of all the pics of red leafed gingers i have never seen this. And it still hasn't bloomed, who know what that will look like! Thanks for the help Tropicanna.
It is Costus "Maroon Chalice". I have grown this for many years now. Its a great plant, not all that cold hardy though. It will come back if it freezes to the ground, but never attain the stature it had before, and never bloom. It would be best to pot some up before winter comes.
There is also a form that has green stems, its called 'Emerald Chalice" and, sometimes, "Buddah Belly Ginger'. Both the green and the red bloom with identical orange-red pineapple like terminal blooms with yellow true flowers.
This is a photo of one of my stands of Maroon Chalice. Its a lovely plant. I recently pruned the stand, and removed all the older larger stalks with spent blooms so I have no bloom photo to offer at the moment
these are greenhouse grown in the ground inside the GH. I have them planted outside as well, outside they die back every year so yes, most of them are down at the moment. My GH plants are coming into bloom now.
