Hedychium coccinaum, I think, but doing well whatever

Post by Dave Brown » Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:38 pm

This is my Hedychium coccineum. Which is 4 years old from a rhizome bought at Wilko's. It has multiplied well considering it doesn't get fed or mulched, and took -10C and frozen ground in Dec 2010.

It has 16 flower spikes on the move at the moment.

Can anyone confirm it is what I think, and is anyone else growing it :?:
