Costus 'Firebird' This plant apparently originated in south Florida, and is believed to be a hybrid of Costus osae with (possibly) Costus comosus. It has soft felty leaves and grows to a mature height of less than 3 feet. The flowers are particularly showy, with red bracts having triangular tips pointed upright for form a base for the long tubular yellow flowers. I am giving this plant a cultivar name of 'Firebird' for the red and yellow flames of the inflorescence and the wing-like bracts.
