Hedychium gardnerianum - BSWJ12533

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £10.00
Originating from one of our seed collections gathered on the high mountains of Sao Miguel Island, part of the Azores in 2008. Where they have made themselves very much at home in the relatively frost free environment, forming large colonies of overlapping rhizomes with stems up to 2m tall (1.5m with us). Bearing semi-evergreen paddle shaped leaves glossy above glaucous below, terminating in a large cylindrical inflorescence of yellow flowers with long exerted orange stigmas late summer into autumn. Easily grown in full sun in a moist drained soil, with added protection for the rhizomes from over freezing.
