I believe this is a type of ginger but does anyone know the name of it? It smells heavenly and if a pineapple had a skeleton inside this is exactly what the flower looks like.

Thank you Jezzybear, Your good! It does look like H.flavescens Yellow Ginger as it is heavily perfumed and blooms on and oval head. This one is planted right outside my bedroom window. It always makes me happy when it finally starts to show the bloom head. Thanks again Catherine
