Shuttleworth's Ginger

(Hexastylis shuttleworthii)

I'll have to dig around in the leaves the next time I see one of these. They have a structure very similar to the little brown jug or Wild Ginger

I think it is Shuttleworth's Ginger, a relative of "little brown jug", but you have to look under the leaves and see if there are little jug looking things around the stem.

At least it looks like that to me.

Go here and compare:

Looks like it is. That mottling on the leaf is pretty distinctive.
