Hedychium spicatum ‘Singalila'
spiked ginger lily
Supplied as a bare root Rhizomes

One of the hardiest and most reliable of all Ginger lilies. The exotic foliage has red tinted undersides, on tall stems that rise to approx. 1.2m. on mature plants. The pseudo stem is topped by large heads of lightly fragrant white flowers with orange to red markings at the base of the petals and stamen in late summer. This Ginger lily is a must for any gardener looking for the tropical look. Plants are deciduous and the pseudo stem will die back in winter. A layer of bark chip should be applied to protect the rhizomes from hard frosts.
