For a tropical appearance in the border or in a color bowl, it's hard to beat this Asian species, which resembles C. zedoaria, except that the leaf is much larger: 28" long and 8" wide. Each textured, green leaf has the same fabulous reddish purple stripe down the center. In addition to the larger leaves and larger stature of the clump, C. ornata has a reddish purple cast to the lower stem. The hidden pine cone-like flowers of light pink are attractive for nearly a month in June.
