We are pleased to offer Hedychium 'Vanilla Ice', a selection from Hedychium 'Dr. Moy' made by NC's defunct Messenbrink's Nursery, that was introduced in limited numbers in 2000. Hedychium 'Vanilla Ice' has much more white flecking than its parent, which reduces it in both size and vigor...a good thing for smaller gardens. Any reverted, larger-growing, less-variegated shoots should be promptly removed. In our trials, Hedychium 'Vanilla Ice' rarely exceeds 4' in height and is topped in late summer with deliciously fragrant, peachy-pink flowers...a real charmer!
