Kahili ginger (Hedychium gardnerianum)

The name derives from its similarity to the Hawaiian Kahili, the sympol of royalty.
It is an invasive plant that easily grows out of control in wet humid areas and smothers local species.

So tender, soft and delicate! I hope you are selling your images, one's like this are really unusual.
