Dichorisandra thyrsiflora

Blue Ginger (Dichorisandra thyrsiflora). Gainesville, Florida. 2012. Commelinaceae (Dayflower or Spiderwort family).

This pretty flower is called Blue Ginger, but isn't a ginger at all. It's a tropical flower in the Spiderwort family. I love the deep, rich blues. It likes to grow in shade, which always poses a bit of problem in photographing without a flash.
