Costus zerumbet Persoon, Syn. Pl. 1: 3. 1805; Languas speciosum (J. C. Wendland) Small; Zerumbet speciosum J. C. Wendland

Leaf blade lanceolate to narrowly elliptical, (20--)33--67 ´ (3--)7.5--11 cm. Inflorescences drooping, 15--30 ´ 6--10 cm; stalks of cincinni 0.3--3 cm, bracteoles sheathing, white proximally, pink distally. Flowers: lip yellow with red penciling, perianth and staminodes otherwise white or pink.

Alpinia zerumbet is commonly cultivated, but rarely escapes. The illegitimate name Alpinia speciosa (J. C. Wendland) K. Schumann and Hollrung 1887 [(not A. speciosa (Blume) D. Dietrich 1839]) has often been used for this species.
