Hedychium greenii has the most impressive flower of all the ginger lilies which I know. Its foliage is also suitably exotic-looking. Many ginger lilies are late flowerers and this one flowers later than most; often it only just manages before being shredded and torn by the winter gales. If it is not given enough compost/fertilizer and water during the growing period it tends to sulk and disappoint.
