Costus fissiligulatusThis plant was distributed by the famous ginger grower John Banta and introduced to the trade by Glenn Stokes of Stokes Tropicals. He dubbed it 'African Princess'. I have been growing it for a couple of years now and it is one of the easiest Costus to grow and bring to flower. It grew to over 6 feet tall in my greenhouse this past winter, but consistently flowers just as easily in a 6 inch pot as shown in the photo to the right. It is untested for cold hardiness but presumed hardy only in USDA zone 10 or possibly 9B. But it is easily propagated and grown in small pots making it suitable as a house plant or greenhouse plant in colder locations.
