Alpinia purpurata and Red ginger are the names of this flower, (very possibly).
Google that name, then look in (Images).

I think your flower look like a bromeliad. They last a long time.

Your plant looks like a Red Ginger but you can tell for sure if you research and check the complete plant photos.

  • Information from one horticultural site.
  • Red ginger is a tropical plant that does best in areas where the temperatures do not drop below 60 degrees F. Ideally, the plant prefers temperatures consistently above 70 degrees F, in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zone 11 and above. It will die if temperatures drop below 40 degrees F, and will grow poorly in 50 degrees F. Grow in partial or filtered sunlight, but not full sunlight, in moist, rich soil that is enhanced monthly with fertilizer.

    It may develop chlorosis, a yellowing of the leaves, if grown in poorly draining soil.
  • Here are a couple of links to get your research started:
  • homeguides.sfgate.com/red-ginger-plant-38261.html
  • Dave's Garden has a lot of photos as well as basic information.
  • davesgarden.com/.../
  • If you do not live in Zone 11 (these grow wild in Ft. Lauderdale, FL) and plan to grow your plant in a container then maybe this is a good site to check.
