HEDYCHIUM AURANTIACUM
: If you have visited Arunachal Pradesh you must have seen the flowers of the attached image on the road side. In fact there are so many types of Hedychium Sp at that place. Hedychium aurantiacum grows in gardens at Tezpur (Assam). It is blooming in our garden at Cooch Behar at present.

Attaching an image of a Tailed Jay butterfly on the flowers of Hedychium aurantiacum.
I collected this plant from Tezpur (Assam), and it is doing well at this place. Arunachal Pradesh has got quite a number of wild variety of Hedychium. Brig. S N Chatterjee collected quite a number from Arunachal and planted those at his house at Tezpur.
 
Please find the photo of Scarlet ginger, Hedychium coccineum

Excellent photograph ...
