Costus woodsonii comes from the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and Panama. I have seen it the Cahuita National Park in Costa Rica growing right up to the edge of the beach in sandy soil, and it must be incredibly salt tolerant.

Some forms are about 2 meters tall but others are shorter, maturing and flowering at about 1 meter. It has bright red bracts and tubular red flowers with a very small opening to the labellum. It can fill an area and makes a showy garden plant. It grows best in sunny areas.
