Hedychium tengchongense ’Trum Trom’ - HWJ684

Pot Size: 1.5 litre
Price: £10.00
A small distinct form of this species which we collected from The Trum Trom Pass the highest pass in Vietnam at just over 2000m. Where it grew on moist shaded vertical cliffs, with reddened upright stems to less than 1m tall in those conditions. Initially mistaken for a Cautleya, but obviously not on flowering here the following year. Bearing broadly ovate dark green leaves on very short petioles, with a broad cylindrical inflorescence of white long-tubed slender distinctly scented flowers with long curved orange-red exserted stigmas mid-summer. Easily grown in either full sun or part shade in a moisture retentive drained soil protect the rhizome from hard frosts, hardy for us unprotected in an open field to below –15C.
