The common name that was given to this plant when I bought it from my local urban garden is Orange *bottle?* Brush Ginger. When I Google it an image of Hedychium coccineum plant comes out, and that plant looks very different from what I have.

The plant is under or about 12 inches tall and the plant produce orange bright flowers. I was too late buying the plant that was blooming. The lady told us that the plant is not edible, it's just an ornamental plant.

Do anyone know more about this plant?

Looks to me like a beautiful specimen of Burbidgea schizocheila.
I love this plant- great orange color.
