Hedychium horsfieldii

26th August 2005

Another species from Java, growing as an epiphyte in forests, but certainly not hardy. I have seen an entire batch of seedlings exterminated in a cold greenhouse, I have killed a flowering plant in a frost free house, and now it takes refuge on the windowsill as soon as autumn starts to develop a chill.

Strange small greenish white flowers have very little impact, but they are followed by a profusion of bright red fruits that make an impressive show.
