Hedychium 'Sherry Baby' Hedychium 'Sherry Baby' is a hybrid ginger lily, bred by Larry Shatzer of Our Kids Tropicals in Orlando, Florida. One of the parents is a Hedychium gardnerianum variant that Larry calls H. 'Gardner Waters', named after the early Hedychium pioneer of that name in California. 'Sherry Baby' carries the strong upright form and the large flower head of that parent plant, but it is a sterile hybrid (too bad for Hedychium breeders). It has only a slight fragrance.

Hedychium 'Sherry Baby' is probably hardy like its parent to zone 7, and has been tested in my garden to the upper teens. It is a vigorous hybrid and makes a very attractive landscape subject. I grow it in 4-5 hours direct sun in rich, moist, organic soil where it grows to 6-7 ft. tall. The flowers start in early summer and continue through the fall. I have also grown it in just a little bit of early morning sun, and it seems to flower just fine under those conditions as well.

I have not seen this listed for sale at any of the big mail order houses, and as far as I know the only place you can buy it is from the breeder, or perhaps from my favorite local nursery, Just Fruit & Exotics, in Crawfordville, Florida. I have grown it for several years and finally have enough of it to offer it here on-line.
