From the late plant breeder Dr. Moy of the San Antonio Botanical Garden comes this new hybrid with white paint-like speckles covering the otherwise green foliage. In September, clumps of Hedychium Dr. Moy are topped with fragrant, peachy-orange flowers with a darker orange throat. Exquisitely fragrant!
