This unique but little-known ginger lily boasts large, glossy, green canna-like leaves on the massive 8' tall stalks. Beginning in late summer, the top of each spike becomes a giant flower head, each with dozens of white, narrow-petaled, hymenocallis-like flowers emitting a strong, delightfully sweet fragrance. This is sure to become a new southern favorite.
