Hedychium coccineum var. angustifolium
Hedychium coccineum var. angustifolium

A marvellous, fairly hardy little Ginger lily with very narrow slightly glaucous foliage and broad rich red-orange flower-spikes, flowering with me in a pot at about 1m, much earlier in the season than others, most important in our cool climate. Outside it likes rich soil in a sheltered warm position and a winter mulch, or grow it in a pot in a conservatory.

Hedychium coccineum var. angustifolium is available from Pan-Global Plants this year
