(aka: Hedychium sp. HWJK3810) We are pleased to share this 2017 introduction, an amazing form of Hedychium urophyllum, purchased from Heronswood Nursery in 2005 as a seedling from a Dan Hinkley collection trip to Vietnam. We've grown Hedychium urophyllum 'Prayer Flags' for fourteen 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, and they 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.
