Hardy Ginger Lily SEEDS (Hedychium densiflorum ) YELLOW FLOWERS
A small, deciduous ginger with leafy shoots to about 1.2 m (4 ft.) tall and a terminal inflorescence with attractive yellow FLOWERS. Native to the Himalayas from Nepal to eastern Tibet between 1800 and 2400 m (5900 and 7900 ft.) it can form large colonies on shaded, often rocky slopes. A HARDY and cool-growing ginger, suitable for USDA Zones 8 to 10 or even lower with heavy mulching.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
