The genus was named for William Roscoe, who founded the Liverpool Botanic Garden way back in the 1800's and is in the same family as culinary ginger, Zingiberaceae.  We have lost our minds over this genus, collecting and hybridizing with abandon.  This is a superb selection out of the UK with dark stems and leaves with pale lavender-tinged flowers.
