(syn: Hedychium coccineum var. aurantiacum PDN Form) We grew this for a long time as a selection of Hedychium coccineum, but now know it to be a hybrid with that species. Hedychium 'Flaming Torch' forms a huge mass of 6-7' tall stalks, each topped with a 1' long head of orange flowers in mid-July (NC). Following flowering, a new set of stems emerge, which flower in September and October. Our eight-year-old patch is 6' wide at the base and looks like a series of giant torches...quite stunning, but allow plenty of room.
