(aka: Hedychium sp. HWJK3810) We are pleased to finally share as a 2017 introduction, this amazing form of Hedychium coronarium, purchased from Heronswood Nursery in 2005 as a seedling from a Dan Hinkley collection trip to Vietnam. We've grown Hedychium coronarium 'Prayer Flags' for twelve years in our garden, during which time it's formed an incredible 7' tall x 8' wide clump. The base of the stems are bright red, unlike the commonly grown form of Hedychium coronarium. The stalks are topped with terminal spikes of sweetly fragrant flowers, starting for us in mid-August (NC)...each creamy white toward the edge and soft yellow toward the center. We named this seedling after the colorful prayer flags that dot many Asian mountains. This is a superb selection that deserves to be much more widely grown.
