I bought this a couple of years ago and now I don't know what kind of ginger it is. I think it is a kaempferia. It has purple flowers that last one day then they fall off. New ones are always growing. Does anyone know the name? It has gotten crowded out here, so I have to move it and would like to label it right also.
