Hedychium 'Samsheri' flower 'Samsheri' is an old hybrid imported from Chandra Nurseries in India back in 1952. It is similar in appearance to H. 'Kinkaku', and for many years I was unsure whether it might be a different name for that other old-time ginger hybrid. However, the recently published book "Hardy Gingers" says that it is a separtate and legitimately named hybrid from 'Kinkaku'. What the distinction is, I am not certain, but to me it seems to produce larger flower heads than 'Kinkaku'. The color is a similar pale pink, and the light fragrance is also close. The only place I have seen it listed for sale -at least under that name - is at Mike Bridges' old nursery, Southern Perennials, where it was listed as a synonym for 'Kinkaku'

It should be hardy to zone 7 or at least 7B, as it was grown for many years at Mike's Tylertown, MS nursery. It should be grown in the typical butterfly ginger soil - moist, fertile, organic - in part sun.
