"Hedychium coccineum", also known as orange gingerlily, scarlet gingerlily, and orange bottlebrush ginger), is a species of flowering ginger. A native of Asia, it grows on the edge of forests and in mountain grasslands. "Hedychium coccineumcan" prefers partial sunshine, but can tolerate full sun. The flowers can range in colour from red to orange to almost yellow.

Tom Wood developed a number of varieties of "Hedychium coccineum" including "aurantiacum", commercially known as "Orange Bush" or "Flaming Torch", which grows to about 1.5 m. with two close ranks of waxy leaves. The flower spike has six rows of small orange flowers with 7 cm. orange stamens radiating outward.
