Hedychium 'Daniel Weeks' flower Hedychium 'Daniel Weeks' is a hybrid butterfly ginger that is much sought after due to its sweet "honeysuckle-like" fragrance and its strong upright canes. As I understand it, it was bred by Russell Adams of Gainesville Tree Farm, and named after an employee there. According to the recently published book, Hardy Gingers", it is a hybrid of H. flavescens and H. gardneranum.

In my garden it grows to 7 ft tall in about 4-5 hours direct sun. It is an early bloomer, the first of the Hedychiums to start flowering in my garden. The flowers start in early to mid June and continue through the summer as new canes come up from the rhizomes. It is one of the most fragrant Hedychium hybrids.

Most references rate this Hedychium as hardy to zone 7 or zone 7B, and it is well proven in my zone 8B garden. As with other Hedychiums, 'Daniel Weeks' likes a rich, moist organic soil with plenty of water and fertilizer during the summer growing season.
