GINGERSRUS CATALOG LISTING:
Costus 'Orange Conch' was collected by the late Mark Collins who collected many of the popular Costus cultivars on the market today. It is probably a form of Costus scaber, but has a different color to the flower and bracts, a clear orange color. It is very easy to grow and flowers dependably. It grows to about 6 feet in height.
