Product information
  • Article number: HEDWAR01

Hedychium wardii produces beautiful flowers from August to the end of September.
This ginger species is found in the Himalayas up to an altitude of 2500 meters.
The green leaves of Hedychium forrestii have petioles that are fresh green in color. The leaf looks a bit like that of the canna. This ginger grows to about 80/100 cm high.

The large flowers are yellow and smell wonderful. The ginger may be fertilized with cow manure pellets or other fertilizers during the season.
After flowering, the plants are cut back to 30 cm in late September / early October. In winter, hibernate (in a pot) at a temperature of + 1ºC or warmer in a light or dark place. Keep the soil practically dry in winter.
If planted in a wet place in the open ground, then rather dig out tubers and overwinter frost-free in peat due to root rot.

In a dry place in winter with some covering of humus or tree bark, this ginger can simply overwinter in the open ground.
So make sure that the frost cannot penetrate too deep into the ground.
Often the winter hardiness is not so important with ginger, if things go wrong in the garden it is often due to a too wet place where the ginger root rotting.
Winter hardiness zone 8a (-10ºC).
