Hedychium gardnerianum

The tall stems of bold leaves arise from a tuberous rootstock, if located in a warm sheltered spot its large heads of cream yellow and orange flowers will fill the late summer garden with scent. If not growing in a mild garden climate it is best to give the tubers an early start under protection then plant out. It is reasonably cold hardy but does require a long growing season to flower reliably in the UK. Grown as a conservatory plant the scent is glorious. Does best when it remains evergreen.
