About

Hedychium greenii is a very ornamental species and is unique in the genus for a couple of reasons; it has very dark green glossy leaves with a maroon/red underside colour that fuses with the stems. The large, singular flowers are bright reddish/orange and give a different look from all other Hedychium flowers. After flowering the plant will grow a plantlet from the old flower spike so don't dead head too soon - this is another unique thing only greenii does.

Origin

South western Butan

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.
