The gingers are a fantastic plant to have in the garden.  Attached photo is costus barbatus or the spital ginger.  Normally this plant has a single head as do most of the plants in our garden.  Last year we were surprised with a doubled headed flower and this week we were surprise with a multiheaded flower.
We will grow the multi headed flower from the flower up and hope to get plants that will only throw similar flowers.
