About

Hedychium coronarium  is a tall, bold ginger with bright green leaves and stem. The underside of the leaves are covered by small hairs. The showy flower is why you grow this ginger - it is large, bright white with a pale green throat. The scent of coronarium is probably the best of all hedychiums, a magnificent gardenia like fragrance, particularly strong in the evening.

Origin

Himalayas- India, Bhutan and China

Planting and care

Best planted in full sun or light shade in moist, humus rich soil. It will respond well to feeding throughout the growing season. Plant deep and give a good mulch for winter protection, or to guarentee full protection you can lift part of the corm and store it frost free during winter.
