Jungle Gardens Flowers

Jungle Gardens is not all about parrots, flamingos and ducks. I found two never before seen flowers.
Shell Ginger, Above closed and walked a few feet and found below with a few opened

I dod not know what this is, above is the bud unopened and below opened. Anyone know what it is?

They both have bees coming after them."

The shell ginger is really pretty, the buds do look like shells. I have no idea on the other one but it is beautiful.

I have the Shell Ginger in my garden but no flowers at the moment. I don't know the other one but it is very pretty with its symmetrical pattern

The first plant does look like shells! And I am not sure of the second one either. You do have a lot of really wonderful things there.

Both of those are gorgeous. In that first one I never would have guessed that it would look the way it does when it opens up. I have no idea what that second one could be but it's very cool looking.

Both of these plants are new to me, but I really like the shell ginger.
