Hedychium yunnanense - BWJ7900

Pot Size: 3 litre
Price: £10.00
From seed I collected in Kunming Botanic Gardens Yunnan, China in 2000. A rare robust species with broad leaves 20-40cm long, on sturdy stems to 1.5m tall, on the plant I collected from. Bearing in late summer narrowly cone-like terminal lax inflorescences, bearing open white fragrant flowers, with long tubes and long exerted orange stamen. Spread 1.5m. Easily grown in full sun to part shade in a leafy moisture retentive, but well drained soil protect from severe frost. No problem for us regarding hardiness, unscathed by -15 to -20C growing in an open field where the drainage is good. These plants often grow as epiphytes in the wild hence it is essential to provide good drainage. Not suitable for clay soils.
