Hedychium Coronarium (Ginger Lilly)
This seems too enormous; looking like a gigantic Canna. It has grown very well this year and should reach 5 feet. Gingers need the sun and moisture. The flowers arrive in September, they are very large white and extremely fragrant. Interestingly, the foliage does smell of ginger when rubbed. Ginger will not tolerate wet conditions and will flower with age, and warmth.
Ginger Lilly: Grown in Nepal and other parts of Asia we are very impressed with this exotic looking plant which is actually very hardy. Our stock is from a grower in Scotland. They are truly spectacular and not readily available – we are so proud to add them to our stock list. They are very large this year and we have not been able to keep them in small 3 litre pots – they are now in 10 litre pots – the foliage is amazing and we are expecting flowers. Our Gingers will be priced according to pot size and age – please call for details.
Please note! In future we will post our #Ginger #Lilly varieties Aurantiacum and Coronarium (Hedychium) ONLY from November through to April, as they are too heavy and tall during the late spring and early summer and unfortunately this makes the costs of postage prohibitive.
