Hedychium coronarium - flowers Hedychium coronarium is probably the most commonly grown of all ornamental gingers, and with good reason. It has adds a tropical look to the garden, provides beautiful white flowers from summer to fall, and yields a heavy sweet fragrance that will fill the evening air. The only negative with this plant, is that it will tend to flop over when the flower heads get too heavy, and will need some staking.

In my garden Hedychium coronarium grows to 8 feet tall, planted in very rich moist, organic soil in a clay base amended with lots of compost, and in 4-5 hours of direct sun. When I have seen it in other plantings in South Florida in a sandy based soil, it has never been nearly so tall, growing to only 5 or 6 ft tall at the most.

Hardiness is usually rated to zone 7 in most references, and I have had confirmed reports from correspondents in Great Britain, in the Pacific Northwest and in the upper South, that it is root hardy to as low as 2 degrees F.

Grow this Hedychium in rich, moist, organic soil in part to full sun. It must have at least a couple of hours of direct sun to bloom well.
