Hedychium densiflorum ‘Stephen’
Supplied in a 1.5litre pot
This hardy ginger is a clump-forming perennial with stems to 1.2 meters in height, and glossy, lance-shaped, mid-green leaves 30-40cm in length. In late summer produces very fragrant, peach coloured flowers in very dense, bottlebrush spikes 20cm long. Larger, more fragrant and earlier flowering than H. densiflorm ‘Assam Orange’. One of the hardiest of all the gingers and a must for any jungle garden!
Grow in full sun to part shade in moist but well drained soil. Prefers a acidic PH, but can handle most soils. Once the foliage dies back mulch the rhizomes with a thick layer of bark chip.
