Hedychium villosum

Tall white flowered species from the same mould as Hedychium spicatum, but with larger heads of flowers. I am still waiting for it to flower here, I have plants from UK sources and also from the USA. Curiously, I have nothing directly from Nepal, southwest to Vietnam, or even from Yunnan in China. There are curently a lot of plants coming out of China, so wild collected material will no doubt appear before long.

This one came to me from Aloha Tropicals in California, and I am waiting to see what it will turn into!

This one is almost certainly H.flavescens.

This one came from Thailand, and I think it is the real thing , possibly in the form of H.villosum var tenuiflorum.

The red stems and knobbly rhizomes of the plant from Thailand are quite unlike the other plants I grow bearing the name.
