Zone 70715 | Anonymous added on April 22, 2021 | Answered

No one I have asked is familiar with the flower my Ginger plant has every August. It likes wet ground; it blossoms in the shade , and has stalk type blossom that is alternate yellow, purple, and mauve. The lady we bought this house from referred to it as Wild Ginger. We live in SE Louisiana, 60 miles NW of Baton Rouge.

Here's an article from the US Forest Service that might help: https://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/plant-of-the-week/asarum_canadense.shtml It contains an image - a bit hard to see clearly, but it looks like the flower grows close to the ground.
