Nearly Perfect Gingers

This year many of the Gingers decided to bloom  again in the Fall.  Maybe they liked all the rain.  This Hedychium hybred “Pink V” has nearly perfect flowers.

The Hedychium coronarium “White Butterfly Ginger” have also been putting on a spectacular showing and sending their scents throughout the garden.

    “Nearly perfect”–yeah, that’s just about right! Really gorgeous blooms–enjoy!

  2. Glorious! Is the fragrance reminiscent of the ginger root?

    I’m not sure I’ve ever seen ginger flowers in real life. If I have, they haven’t been as perfect as these. They’re just gorgeous — perhaps it was the rain that helped them out.

    A friend in Wharton was exclaiming over some of her wildflowers that have just gone crazy. She was thinking that perhaps she did need to give them a bit of extra water now and then — she’s never seen them bloom so prolifically.

    • I would guess they grow down your way, as you are slightly warmer than my area. I’ve seen many tropicals in the Galveston area that I can’t grow here. I do think many plants appreciated the extra rain, but the ones we planted for drought conditions didn’t like the rain so much.

    So not only does this precious plant give us ginger which we use in teas and cooking, it also gives us beautiful flowers. Lovely photos. Once I tried to grow ginger in Ireland, the plant became large enough but I never did get a flower, I guess it is not warm enough and not enough sun? I will try again some time!

  5. Wow. These look lovely. Are they blooms from edible ginger plants or mainly perennial flowers?
