Hedychium 'Kanes Pink' Here is another pink-flowering Hedychium that is hard to distinguish from some of the others, but apparently is an old cultivar from "people who loved gingers when gingers wasn't cool". This one has been floating around the Houston area for many years. My friend and fellow ginger grower, David Petersen, tracked down the story. It seems that many years ago, perhaps back in the 70's, there was a ginger grower and amateur hybridizer named Mrs. Kane, who gave this ginger to a Mrs. Robertson who propagated and sold the plant at the Houston Bulb Mart for many years. She named it 'Kane's Pink' and it has since traveled far and wide from garden to garden.

If it hasn't made it to your garden yet, here's your chance to add it to your collection. It grows to about 6 ft tall in my garden, and has sturdy sheaths that hold it upright without staking. The flowers come in late summer and have a slight fragrance.

I am assuming it will be hardy to zone 7 like most similar Hedychiums, and should be grown in part sun, rich, moist, organic soil with plenty of nutrients.
