Hedychium 'Gold Flame' - flower Hedychium 'Gold Flame' is a Tom Wood hybrid, which gets its sweet gardenia fragrance from the common white butterfly ginger, Hedychium coronarium. The foliage grows up to 7 ft tall, depending on growing conditions, but this is not the strongest upright Hedychium, and it will tend to flop over if it gets too tall due to the weight of its flower head. It is a vigorous hybrid and will increase as rapidly as the parent H. coronarium.

It is reliably root hardy to USDA zone 7, but the foliage will freeze back with the first hard frost. The rhizomes may be lifted and stored over winter if you are in a colder winter area, but this plant will need warm summers to grow well.

The flowers have a bright gold "flame" in the center, and are quite showy. As noted above, they will exude a sweet heavy fragrance in the evening.

Grow this Hedychium in rich, moist, organic soil in part to full sun. It must have at least a couple of hours of direct sun to bloom well.
