Hedychium 'Elizabeth' flower This Tom Wood hybrid is one of the most popular gingers in cultivation, and you may find it for sale at a lower price elsewhere. However, beware and make certain you know your supplier, because I bought this Hedychium three times before I finally got the REAL Hedychium 'Elizabeth'. My specimen comes directly from the breeder, Tom Wood, and not from any tissue culture, nursery or mail order source. Hedychium 'Elizabeth' has distinctive raspberry colored flowers and a very sweet fragrance. BTW, Tom named it after an old girlfriend, in case you wondered.

I have always seen this grown in part sun like other Hedychiums, but one year I was visiting at Daniel Stowe Botanic Garden, just west of Charlotte, NC. They have all their Hedychiums growing in wide open full sun! (Proves they will grow under those conditions.) What amazed me was to see that of all their Hedychiums, by far the tallest was 'Elizabeth'. It was growing about 8 feet tall and had huge flower heads. Below is a photo from there. If I had full sun in my yard I would definately try this one in full sun. Beyond that, it should be grown in rich, moist, organic soil as with other Hedychiums, and it is rated as zone 7 hardy.
