Peacock Ginger / Kaempferia roscoeana

The peacock ginger is showing up its peacock like leaves. By late summer the leaves will be a regular green. The flowers will continue until cold weather.

The rhizomes of this plant pops up all over my garden. This one is the lawn. It gets cut along with the grass and it never can produce a full leaf, but it manages to put up a nice flower.
