Hedychium 'Helen Dillon'

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £15.00
A superb hybrid (I suspect) which masquerades as H. forrestii and/or H. forrestii hort., in cultivation. Forming tall stems to around 1.5-2m, just about robust enough to stand upright, with dark green paddle-shaped leaves. Flowering August to October here, bearing almost pure white heavily scented flowers, with up to three flowers arising from each rolled bract in succession. Meanwhile the anthers are a fleshy yellow colour (white in H. forrestii). It is known to bear seed in the UK. We are nameing this clone for our dear friend Helen Dillon, from the fair city of Dublin, who gifted us a plant some years ago, as she so generously has to so many gardeners. Easily grown in full sun to part shade in a leafy moisture retentive but drained soil, protect the rhizomes from frost.
