We are growing this one, but no sign of flowers on ours....

How long have you had it DD?

Meanie:

Is it just blooming, now? This one usually blooms in May June and July.

Hedychium coronarium and flavescens (the white and yellow ginger) usually blooms in late summer through fall.

It is always a bit touch and go for me whether they will or not before the frosts.

The two that you mentioned look superb, especially H.coronarium. Off to look for seed.

Two years Meanie, thinking of putting it in a container and forcing it to flower!!

H. coronarium and flavescens can take over a huge area...and sometimes can become weedy.

I absolutely love H. greenei! (it's a summer-bloomer) I used to love getting all the little plantlets out of the old flower spikes. It should grow very well for you.

DD - How large are the tubers? Most Hedtchium tubers sold in GC's are a couple of years away from flowering size at least.

Meanie:

Are you looking for H. coronarium and greenei?

9 Sep, 2014

 

I've decided to try quite a few next year.

Quite large , it is going to take a blooming large container to get them going, went to a rare plant sale and noticed theirs were flowering, hardly any soil all tubers really pot bound?
