Hedychium spicatum - BSWJ7231

Pot Size: 10 litre
Price: £15.00
Description:
From of my collections gathered on my last expeditions to Doi Chiang Dao a corrupt opium-growing area of northern Thailand. Where I found this species growing on the summit, where it regularly hibernated back to a shrivelled rhizome that could only bear short stems in such challenging conditions, bearing a profusion of fragrant white flowers, in open spikes during late summer. Height in garden 1.2-1.5m spread 60cm. Best grown in good light to light shade in a well drained soil that has some moisture retention, protect the rhizomes from penetrating frosts.*** *** *** This plant is only available bare rooted when dormant.
