Hedychium coronarium 'White Buerfly Ginger'

Picked up Hedychium coronarium 'White Butterfly Ginger' earlier this week. I finally got it into a pot. I know its a little small but it should hold them until I can figure out where the best place to put them.

Since these guys had to be planted so close to the surface, they are top heavy. I couldn't get them to stand on their own. I took four bamboo stakes and wrapped them with a sturdy twine. Eventually I will be able to remove them. Once I find the perfect spot I will stake the pot to the ground and mount the pot so it won't tip over in a bad storm.


  1. This is one of my favorite flowers! Be patient with them; they often don't bloom until their second season. They are worth the wait.

  2. I have heard that as well. I know these were extras a woman across town had thined out of her garden and I found her add on Garden Web. I am hopping they do produce this year. At the end of the season I have to find a better place for these guys!

  3. Very nice. I don't have any gingers. Maybe I should. Thanks for adding Red Dirt Ramblings to your blogroll.~~Dee
