Hedychium 'Salmon' flower It is hard to capture the exact color of this one, but the cultivar name is Hedychium 'Salmon'. I received this plant in a trade from a collector in Michigan, believe it or not. I have never seen it offered in commerce, so I was guessing he bred it and named it himself. I have one other of his hybrids. Then along comes the new book "Hardy Gingers", and there it is in black and white. I don't know whether the author found it published somewhere else or picked up the name from my website but strangely there have been several of my "exclusive" Hedychiums published in his book, and no mention of the source. (Do I sound a bit unhappy about this?)

The foliage is grey-green and narrow like H. coccineum, but it is a lot taller. It is a very strong upright grower, with less tendency to flop over than many other Hedychiums. I am growing it in about 2 hours direct sun, where it grows to 7 ft. tall. The flower heads are very showy and have a light fragrance. It starts blooming in July and repeats (on new canes) until fall.

Grow this Hedychium in rich, organic soil in part sun.
