We are pleased to offer several wonderful introductions from ginger lily breeder Doyle Smittle. Hedychium 'Tai Monarch' makes a 50" tall clump topped from midsummer until fall with huge 12" or larger flower heads. Each flower head is composed of more than 100 light yellow (RHS 4D) flowers with the intoxicatingly strong fragrance of honeysuckle. Hedychium 'Tai Monarch' has proven to be a fantastic ginger lily in our trial gardens.
