Hedychium 'Pradhanii' flower This is one of the oldest Hedychium cultivars still in cultivation, perhaps only H. 'Kewense' has been around longer. The name has caused lots of ginger collectors some confusion as to whether it is a species or a hybrid. Tom Wood has traced back the history and verified that it is a hybrid Hedychium from the Chandra Nursery in Sikkim, India, imported to the USA in 1952.

This is one of the first Hedychium hybrids I planted in my garden and it has increased well. It usually produces a spectacular show with huge flower heads, soft creamy white flowers with pale pink stamens. It reportedly has a light fragrance, but I did not notice any fragrance. It is one of the taller growing cultivars, about 7 feet in my garden.

Hedychium 'Pradhanii' should be grown in part sun, moist, rich, organic soil. It is rated hardy to zone 7B, and has been thoroughly tested for hardiness at Plant Delights in Raleigh, NC.
