Hedychium Hybrid (Tresco 2)

This is an evergreen clump forming perennial. It is said to be a cross of H. gardnerianum and H. coronarium, however it seems possible that it is in fact a form of Hedychium chrysoceulum. A good grower it originated at the Abbey gardens Tresco and has a good strong scent and is earlier to flower than either of the parents if it is indeed a cross. The rootstock is hardy in the south of England outdoors without lifting, a warm position (not necessarily sunny) and winter mulch will ensure flowering before autumn fades. Kept in protection this ginger will remain evergreen through the winter months and flowering will be earlier. A stunning plant for foliage and flower. good in the conservatory for foliage effect as well as scent when in flower.
