This ginger is the only hedychium with significant colour in the leaves, being glossy dark green above and maroon beneath with maroon stems. A superb architectural foliage plant with deliciously scented orange flowers. A great feature plant for conservatory or patio in an ornamental container, or grown in the garden. Must be kept moist during the growing season. Feed well for best results with flowering. Can be propagated by division in spring, but not while dormant.
