Description

Hedychium griffithianum, Griffth Butterfly Ginger, is a medium-sized ginger from the Himalayas with lush foliage to 1.5m and sweetly fragrant inflorescences of white flowers with a delicate spidery appearance and salmon-pink filaments and anthers. It is one of the most beautiful of all the Hedychiums and like most in the genus requires a long, warm, growing season to flower. Often the onset of a cold autumn will curtail flowering at the bud stage.
