Elizabeth Hardy Ginger Lily is one of the the tallest and most imposing ginger lilies, both for size (6' stems) and for flower. Starting in late July, the towering 9' tall stalks of this Hedychium coccineum hybrid are topped with clusters of brilliant reddish-orange flowers with a salmon butterfly mark. In late afternoon, the exquisite honeysuckle-like fragrance wafts through the garden from its lofty perch. It was hybridized by Tom Wood.
