Just as the Sarracenias are starting to look a bit ratty, the Hedychiums start to look fantastic.


Hedychium coccineum 'Tara' . Introduced by Tony Schilling in the '70's. Spicy scent, the hardiest of the H.coccineum forms, and one of the earliest to flower.


Hedychium yunnanense. Vigorous. Masses of flowers.


Hedychium wardii. The most astonishing (more or less) hardy plant you can imagine. Will be in flower for about six weeks.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Beautiful flowers. I've had 3 species Hedychium for a few years and yet to get any flowers. They are starting to reach a reasonable size now, so here's hoping for 2008...
