DISCRIPTION:

Costus speciosus, a popular species among 80-100 species of flowering plants in the genus Costus.Costus speciosus ‘Variegatus’ is a variegated cultivar with marvellous leaves in bright green and creamy white.With a moderate growth rate, this erect, evergreen and perennial herb reproduces vegetatively by underground rhizomes and easily forms a dense clump of cane-like stems, 1.5-2 m in height.
The clustering and leafy stems, green to reddish-brown in colour, are upright and unbranched, and some may occasionally contort into a lovely spiral pattern at the top-end.The evergreen, sessile and variegated green leaves are simple and entire, elliptic to oblong, 15-30 cm long and with pointed tips. Each leaf has a narrow white strip along the margin and white streaks randomly on the blade. The underside of the leaves is silky-pubescent. The leaves alternate in a spiralling fashion around the reddish-brown stems.
More dramatic are its captivating snowy-white and trumpet-shaped flowers.
Each stem will produce a brownish-red cone-like terminal inflorescence, where large and showy flowers, usually 3-4 at a time, emerge from the ovate bracts.
Each trumpet-shaped, frilly and crepe-like white flower, up to 10 cm in diameter, has fused petals forming a large petaloid labellum and exposing a tiny, yellow, petal-like stamen with reflexed tip at the opening of the floral tube.The delicate flowers seem as if made from crepe paper, hence aptly given the common name, Crepe Ginger.
It flowers freely throughout the year in the tropics.
The flowers are followed eventually by roundish to ovoid, red 3-angled fruit capsules, 1.5 cm across, containing black seeds and white flesh that are favoured by birds.


* Deadhead and cut off withered leaves to keep it aesthetically pleasing. Feed once monthly with a balanced fertilizer during the growing season. Sometimes the cane-like stems may need staking due to the heavy weight above. Generally it is pest and disease free. Nevertheless, do watch out chewing/sucking insects, red spider mites and nematodes.
