This is growing within my hedges. Any idea what it is?

If I turn my monitor sideways, it looks like Shampoo Ginger - Zingiber zerumbet.

RE: Plant ID

Weird. It's sideways on my tablet but not on my phone. I believe you are correct about the plant. Thanks.

RE: Plant ID

Also known as Pinecone Ginger. The pinecone part will have some clear sap. The Hawaiians used it as shampoo. I rub some on my arms as mosquito repellant.
