Hedychium spicatum 'Singalila' - BSWJ2303

Pot Size: 7.5 litre
Price: £15.00
An unusual form of this species which we collected the seed of during our first Himalayan expedition in 1994. From the Singalila Ridge, West Bengal, on northern India's boarder with Nepal. A strong growing clump forming rhizomatous perennial, bearing a profusion of fragrant white flowers, in open spikes during late summer. With broad lance-shaped bronze coloured backs to the leaves in this form. Height only 1.2-1.5 m with a spread of 60 cm. Full sun to part shade in a moisture retentive but drained soil protect the rhizomes from severe frosts in cold areas. Taken -15C for us in open fields without any losses.
