# A PHOTO A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY – Day 37

From the archives

28th April 2012

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’.
