Lovely! Looks like Arundina bambusifolia, "bamboo orchid", often planted in tropical landscapes, native to southeast Asia. Completely naturalized in Hawaii, I think.

A jawbreaker... Justicia chrysostephana. Many of the Justicias are commonly called "shrimp" plants, but not this particular one. Very tropical.

Oh, of course. Thanks for the ID. Really happy you're participating and willing to share your expertise on plants/flowers.

Welcome. Glad to help when/if I can... my expertise -- such as it is -- is mostly orchids and tropicals. Had to check my image reference library for the Justicia, I knew I had photographed this plant a few times myself but couldn't call the name to mind. It's definitely a beautiful thing, the color is so intense it's hard to believe it's real. TFS!

Rummaging through the archives while cooped-up like everybody else, ran across a few tropicals that may be of interest...

First, Calathea warscewiczii, one of the "prayer" plants, grown mostly for pretty foliage, but I think the flowers are very interesting, too:

Another Calathea, not sure of the name as there are quite a few dodgy hybrids in the tropical foliage plant trade

Oops, my bad on the caption for the last one, it's Costus erythrophyllus (not Calathea), and it is a ginger...

and another one, sometimes called "blood ginger" because the leaves are dark red on the underside. Very handsome plant,

A lily of some kind - does anyone know precisely how many varieties there are?

I'm sure somebody knows,, but not I. Alas. This may be an Alstroemeria, sometimes known as "Peruvian" lily, but I'm not positive. Common in the cut flower trade but they don't grow particularly well here in south Florida. So my experience with them is limited to the floral bunches in buckets at the supermarket. Anybody else with a suggestion is welcome to educate both of us!

Really big flowers, this is a Brugmansia, known commonly as "angel's trumpet", I think it's a hybrid, most of them are white, pink or pale yellow. Base of the "bell" is probably a good six or seven inches across.

I had previously only seen this flower when it dropped to the ground from far up in a tall tulip tree (Leriodendron tulipifera).
