Hedychium 'Ayo' inflorescence The only place I have seen this Hedychium cultivar for sale is at Stokes Tropicals. They say it was received in 1996 from a "Mr. Ayo" in Louisiana, making it an old hybrid of undetermined origin. According to the recently published "Hardy Gingers", it is a hybrid of H. coccineum var. angustifolium, but where it got its fragrance and its flower shape I have no idea. The flower shape is distinctively different from every other Hedychium hybrid I have seen. The flowers are large and rounded - almost cupped - creamy white with a hot pink center.

For some reason Stokes only has this one listed as zone 9 hardy, but there is no reason it should not be as hardy as other Hedychium hybrids of the same parentage, so I would give it a zone7B rating if not zone 7. It should have the same culture as other similar Hedychiums - rich, moist, organic soil in part sun.
