Hedychium flavum - HWJ604

Pot Size: 4 litre
Price: £15.00
At last the true species, the name is frequently seen, but this is the only stock we have seen offered for sale in Europe. Forming a small plant to only 1.2m tall where we collected seed of this species on Fan Xi Pan, the highest mountain in northern Vietnam with Dan Hinkley in 1999. Taller in gardens with few broad leaves to 40cm long on upright dark red stems, bearing a terminal inflorescence of deep yellow flowers, appearing from behind broad dark red clasping bracts, late summer into autumn with us. A strong grower which we grow in an open field to -15C. Easily grown in full sun to part shade in a leafy moisture-retentive drained soil, protecting from severe frost with a thick mulch. Sold as H. urophyllum by us for many years
