Tapeinochilos is a close relative to Costus - one of seven genera in the plant family Costaceae. They are known for their showy, waxy bracts which last for a very long time. Tapeinochilos recurvatum is one of the best of the terminal bloomers in the genus. It forms a pink and lavendar inflorescence that nearly glows with its striking colors.

The plant grows to about 5 feet tall as a potted specimen, with branching stems and spiraling leaves, medium green with purplish undersides. It must be grown in a greenhouse except in frost free areas, but otherwise it is not difficult to grow and it flowers very easily.
