Hedychium elatum

26th August 2005

Described as growing from twelve to fourteen feet high, if my baby ever grows up I am going to need a new greenhouse. Distributed by KobaKoba , from plants grown by Ganesh Mani Pradhan in northern India.

When I built my greenhouse, I thought that eleven feet to the eaves would be sufficient, but secretly I am quite looking forward to seeing it dwarfed by the white flower spikes of this species.

It has been one of the slowest to start into growth this year, and unless I can find a way of starting it earlier, I dont think it is going to flower here.
