Hedychium Maximum flower I received this large butterfly ginger in a trade identified as "Hedychium Maximum" but it is not the yellow-flowering species H. maximum, but rather the large form of Hedychium coronarium, the common white butterfly ginger. It grows to 8 ft tall in my garden with attractive dark green foliage. It has the same sweet evening fragrance as the common one, but with slightly larger flowers, taller canes and fatter rhizomes. The flowers start in mid summer and continue through fall.

It has been reliably hardy in my zone 8B garden, and most references rate this type of Hedychium as hardy in zone 7. Like all butterfly gingers, the foliage will freeze back but the rhizome will sprout new growth in spring. It is a vigorous ginger that will form a nice clump in a single summer.

This is another sun loving Hedychium. I have it growing in about 4 hours direct sun, but it can be planted in nearly full sun if the soil is kept moist. It should be grown in rich, organic soil.
