Hedychium coccineum 'Applecourt' is one of our favorite ginger lilies. This little-known cultivar is one that we picked up on a 1995 visit to the former Applecourt Nursery in the UK. The massive 1'+ long flower heads of brilliant scarlet orange with red throats top the 5-6' tall clump in midsummer and again in early fall. Moist, but well-drained soils grow the best specimens.
