Roscoea cautleyoides

I'm new to growing Roscoea, and this spring Roscoea cautleyoides bloomed 
beautifully from plants purchased the previous year.  The flowers are soft yellow, 
and appear in long succession.  The old foliage lengthened quite a bit, and 
fell over in the summer, yet remained green. I was surprised to find, just a 
few days ago, that Roscoea cautleyoides had 5-6 new bloom stalks each with 5-6 
flowers, emerging from the crown of the plant.    Does this species regularly 
rebloom in the late summer or fall?  Do other Roscoea do this?
