Morning Scents

The strong scent of the Butterfly Gingers (Hedychium coronarium) drew me across the yard this morning.  Several were blooming and one was just perfect with all the flowers open at the same time.  A cold front that came through dropped our temperatures to the mid 80’s (yes, that is a cold front for us) and allowed the flowers to stay on longer.

    That is lovely. I’ve had a few this year but they never open up together and look so pretty.

  2. Yay! the 80s.I can almost smell the Gingers..I had them in Atlanta and it nearly always got too cold just before they flowered. the ones here are just puny..

    That really is a beauty. How will it fare if we do get into the 50s with this weekend’s front? I have a feeling these are tropical, but they may be more hardy than I realize.

    Beautiful bloom and what a bonus that it’s fragrant. I know that gingers grow in Austin, though I never have had them in my garden.
