No, not an orchid.  It's one of the hardy gingers, Hedychium gardnerianum, Kahili ginger.  Thoroughly exotic in cooler climates, a pest in warm climates, but absolutely beautiful.  The only problem is that the flower head only lasts about 6 days,  Here's one from my Plymouth, UK garden:

I'm hoping it will flower again this year.
