It is still uncertain whether Hedychium efilamentosum is in cultivation or not. When Hedychium
wardii was first introduced, it was identified wrongly, and distributed under this name. My plant
is slowly heaving itself up to flowering size, and in theory, I will then know what I am growing.
My experience in the real world is that once it flowers I will be more confused about its
identity than I am now!

Now it has flowered it is clear that this is H.wardii.
