Hedychium 'Tahitian Flame'

2nd November 2008

As a result of the popularity of 'Dr Moy'as a foliage and flowering plant there was a need to propagate it cheaply and reliably, so it has been micropropagated. Like most variegated plants, it has proved to be slightly unstable in culture and some better variegated forms have emerged.This is one of them, and is being distributed very efficiently by Terra Nova Nurseries.

The long gap between pictures doesn't represent lethargy on my part but rather the run of cold winters in 2009/10/11 which wiped out the original plant. This is a replacement obtained as a young plant that is just starting to show its potential.
