Hedychium maximum

Archive entry 26.10.08

20th January 2006

A very large growing ginger with distinctive sheaves of alternate leaves. Very large pure yellow flowers emerge from cone like, imbricately bracted heads. My oldest plant has been six inches taller at flowering every year since I obtained it, and is now pushing at the roof of the greenhouse (11'). Very late to flower.
