Abstract: Crepe Ginger is known as Cane-reed, Malay ginger, Spiral flag, spiral gingerin India the tree flowers at the end of the cold season and the commencement of the hot weather. In India some of the trees bloom the whole year round, biological named as Hellenia speciosa belonging to the family Costaceae. Crepe Ginger e grows to a height of 9-12 m. Stem is generally crooked wood intensely hard, the branches knotty and bark deeply furrowed. The dense crown of close-growing foliage gives the tree a rounded, compact, net appearance. Each leaf is composed of 2 or 3 pairs of smooth, stalk less leaflets arranged on a slender mid-rib. The leaflets are 6-13 cm in length. Present work was carried out on pharmacognostical studies on leaf of Crepe Ginger includes T. S, stomatal index, vein islet and termination no., palisade ratio, and powder analysis, moisture content, ash value, extractive value for leafy sample. Certain microscopical characteristics like stomata, trichomes, calcium oxalate crystals, starch grains, stone cells, fibers, vessels are important anatomical characteristics of organized drugs. The powder characters were Parenchyma Cells, Oil globules, Non glandular trichomes, Glandular trichomes, Epidermal Cells, stomata, Phloem Fibers, Spiral xylem vessel. Plant shows vital role in Antimicrobial activity in aqueous extract of the plant.
