This hard to find Tom Wood hybrid is a cute little ginger with an overpowering fragrance. The 5' tall clump is topped in late summer with clusters of narrow light yellow flowers, a dark yellow throat, a cute little fused harelip, and emanates the unmistakable aroma of eau d' honeysuckle. I think H. 'Mutant' is simply darling... but then I've never been known for liking "normal" plants.
