Hedychium thyrsiforme

15th September 2004

Compact spikes of white spidery flowers. It makes fabulous clumps of rounded leaves, which is good, beacause the flowers come so late in the year they often don't mature.

Frost this year stopped the flowers from developing again.

It doesn't flower very often, usually the winter weather intervenes. This year was no exception, the first flowers almost opened and then the flower head wilted in the frost.
