Some kind of curcuma ginger.

Thanks everyone - that should help me to narrow it down!

I agree it is Curcuma. By the way did you know that curcuma roots are dried and ground to make what we know as Tuermeric?

Can someone help me identify this plant? I thought it was a weed, but it is the only plant like it in my yard.
