Dazzling Disneys

The Hedychium coccineums, otherwise known as Disney Gingers, are dazzling this year.

The Gingers are blooming a little earlier this season,  due to rain and an early Spring.

The Disney Gingers have really multiplied this year and have very robust flowers. Quite a few haven’t bloomed yet, so the show will be extended for weeks.

Gingers Showing Off

_______________________________

The Gingers have really put on an end of summer show and  I think they out did their spring blooms.  The Hedychium are sending out fabulous scents that entice me to the back corner of the yard several times a day to inhale their sweet smells.

Morning Surprises

This stunning White Texas Star Hibiscus (Hibiscus coccineus) made its presence know this morning by putting on a surprising show from across the yard.  It had been struggling, not blooming and mostly forgotten.  Today it received full attention.

A “Disney” Ginger was spotted peeking out from behind the fence.  Click on the photo twice to find it.

After further investigation, a small colony of escapees were found.

This Hedychium coccineum ginger is a good choice for the Automatic Garden.  It just needs some directional guidance!
