Hedychium coccineum 'In Excess'

23rd November 2008

I bought this last year at In Excess Garden Centre (Ringwood). There was no possibility that I was going to drive past a garden centre that was promising it in excess! They had a few of these plants for sale, that I immediately dismissed as not being H.coccineum. It may still turn out to be 'Devon Cream' or one of the many grow-a-likes, but I have since seen a similar leaved form flowering at Wisley with salmon flowers, so I may be lucky!

This is the Wisley plant, and I would be delighted to have it!
