Hedychium 'Tara'

This is a clump forming perennial. It appears to be a naturally occurring form of H. coccinea, a good tall grower it originated from wild collected seed and has a good scent. 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. A spectacular plant for foliage and flower, one of the taller Hedychium up to 1.8M. Will remain evergreen if protected.
