Hedychium densiflorum 'LS&H 17393'



14th August 2005


Originally collected by Ludlow, Sherriff and Hicks in 1949 in Bhutan. This form is quite small growing and has paler orange flowers than many others. Experience has shown it to be one of the hardiest of Hedychiums in cultivation.

This pattern, with the upper and lower flowers opening while the centre of the spike remains in bud, seems to be characteristic of the clone.
