Hedychium hasseltii flower Do you want a butterfly ginger but do not have much space? Hedychium hasseltii is a short butterfly ginger, growing to only 3 ft tall in my garden. The white flowers are pretty but not especially showy or long lasting. They have a light but pleasant fragrance. The short stature of this ginger gives it a good use in the garden and it is the ideal Hedychium for indoor gardening or growing in pots.

This Hedychium, unlike most popular garden Hedychiums, comes from the more tropical climate of Java, rather than from the northern part of India. It is an epiphyte in nature, but I have grown it successfully as a terrestrial in well drained soil. I have tried it in varying degrees of moisture and sunlight, and it seems to grow best for me in well drained organic soil in filtered shade. Hedychium hasseltii is definately root hardy for me in Tallahassee, no problem surviving low to mid twenties. It is generally rated in the trade as zone 8 hardy.
