"Orange Brush" Ginger In A Florida Eden

My cousin, Hunter, who has two green hands as opposed to two green thumbs, shared this nice photo of an orange ginger blooming in his Florida garden. There are so mnay different kinds of gingers in my reference books, but I think this one might be identified as hedychium coccinium var. 'Aurantica' known as the "Orange Brush Ginger". It is in a very happy place snuggling with an anthurium.

Very interesting ginger flower and I would imagine it has a nice scent.
