Hedychium 'Pink V' - flower Hedychium 'Pink V' is a very popular hybrid butterfly ginger that was bred by Tom Wood in his early years hybridizing Hedychiums (although he never gets credit for it). He originally named it 'Tropical Passion' but somehow that did not catch on. It is one of my personal favorite Hedychium hybrids. By most accounts the name Pink V is from the pinkish edges of the ligules forming "V" shapes on the canes - not from any markings on the flowers themselves.

It is a medium height ginger, growing in my garden to a little over 6 feet tall. The canes are fairly sturdy upright, not needing staking. Other references indicate it has either a "strong" or a "citrus" fragrance, but I have only detected a light fragrance, and you should not expect this ginger to fill the evening air with the heavy gardenia fragrance of a white butterfly ginger. The flowering season lasts from mid summer to early fall.

Like most Hedychiums, it is root hardy to zone 7. It should be grown in part sun to very light shade, in rich, moist, organic soil.
