Hedychium villosum v. tenuiflorum - KWJ12305

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £12.00
Description:
A small variety of a distinct species we collected seed of on Fan Xi Pan, the highest mountain in northern Vietnam in 2007, accompanied by our friend Ben Kettle. Where the plants we collected seed from formed a congested mat on a stony shaded riverbank with lanceolate evergreen leaves only 20cm long, on procumbent rooting stems to 50cm tall. Bearing short terminal inflorescences, with long slender white fragrant flowers terminating in the distinct arrow-shaped anthers, from autumn into winter or until frost (well into winter under protection). Best grown in full sun in a drained leafy moist soil, protect from frost with a heavy mulch or keep in containers.
