The photo below is one I don’t remember taking, but since it was between 2 images from Melbourne Zoo, that must have been the location. The image just before it was in the Butterfly House.
I’m not even sure what it is.
Could it be a Canna Lily? I can see the vague shape of leaves that look like Canna leaves.
EDIT: It’s RED BUTTERFLY GINGER, SCARLET GINGER LILY, SCARLET GINGER (Hedychium greenii) – it seems to have many common names. Originally from Bhutan. Thanks to Nick at ‘Sweet Gum and Pines’.
