Hedychium 'Golden Butterflies' flower 'Golden Butterflies' is the only hybrid Hedychium I am aware of that has been produced by the "Kaempferia King" - John Banta. John combined the merits of Hedychium gardnerianum with the fragrance of Hedychium flavescens to produce this hybrid many years ago. The flower color is a deep golden orange with a red center, red stamens and wonderfully fragrant. Also distinctive in this hybrid are the glossy dark green leaves on arching pseudostems. This could almost be called the perfect hybrid Hedychium, except that it lacks hybrid vigor, and has taken me 6 years to grow enough of it to share on line.

Based on its parentage I would think that it would be only zone 8 hardy, but most sources rate it as zone 7 or 7B, and it has been carried for sale at Plant Delights in Raleigh, NC. It should be grown in the typical butterfly ginger soil - moist, fertile, organic - in part sun.
