Hedychium 'Devon Cream'



25th August 2005


A very beautiful plant, with an obscure origin. It was distributed from the gardens at Great Dixter, but its original source is unknown. It has previously been distributed as "Great Dixter" or "hybrid from Great Dixter". This new cultivar name, from KobaKoba, provides a firm nomenclatural base to work from. Assumed to be a hybrid between Hedychium coronarium and Hedychium gardnerianum, there are a number of other similar forms in circulation. 'Tresco 1', 'Tresco 2', 'Hardy Exotics 1', "Hybrid from St.Matins" and "Fake Tara" all seem to be derived from the same parents. How many different plants there actually are remains to be seen.
