Dichorisandra thyrsiflora or blue ginger is a huge plant with big spikes of blue flowers atop a tall tower of foliage. Blue ginger produces flowers that can last for months, and they continue to produce new flowers year round.

A species of tropical flowering plant which resembles ginger in growth and habit, but is actually related to the spiderworts. The plant is native to the tropical woodlands of North, Central and South America, especially in Atlantic Forest vegetation in Brazil.

They make neat garden plants in tropical areas or gorgeous houseplants for those of us that experience cold winters. Both of these plants are easy to grow and tolerant of the conditions inside most homes.
