Cultivated, garden plant seen in July,16.

Zingiberaceae Family?

Indianthus sp. of Marantaceae

Thanks a lot for the suggested id.

From the given clue, I tried searching further.
Could it be Marantochloa purpurea as per this link?
This is just a suggested id.

POWO describes no distribution of  any Marantochloa sp. from Kenya, however it resembles with Marantochloa alba A.C.Ley !

Thanks for the suggested id.
This was a cultivated plant in a resort.

Cultivated plants need not have a distribution in any particular country, is my guess.
