Hedychium greenii (Red Butterfly Ginger) slide #62117

Hedychium greenii (Red Butterfly Ginger)

Sun to Part SunZone: 8-10, at least 36" tall Origin: Asia

NEW! Hedychium greenii has long been one of our favorite gingers, only we have never been able to overwinter it outdoors until now. Finally, a form that we got from plantswoman Linda Guy has survived since 2007 including one winter at 9 degrees F. The 3' tall stalks, that emerge for us in late June, are adorned with dark olive green, red-backed leaves. The stalks are topped, starting in mid-July and lasting until fall, with orange-red terminal flowers. Since H. greenii is sterile, it has learned to reproduce by plantlets that form on the old flower stalks. Pot size: 3 qt. (2.83 L)
