The most showy cultivar is Hedychium Disney - a form of Hedychium coccineum, also known as the "Honduras form". The original plant was "released from captivity" at Disney World many years ago by one of the pioneer ginger collectors, and ever since has been referred to as Hedychium Disney. This is also a synonym for Hedychium Orange Brush. Considered one of the best selections of the Himalayan H. coccineum, H. Disney has wonderfully glaucous foliage with a reddish cast to the underside on a very tall 7' stem. At the top in late summer you will find brilliant, orange-red, delightfully fragrant flowers. Like all H. coccineum forms, the entire clump flowers at one time and then rests before another flowering period. H. 'Disney' stays very erect in part sun, unlike some of the other gingers.

One problem with many Hedychiums is that they are not strong upright plants and need staking to keep them from flopping all over the place. Not true of this one, it stands at nearly full attention throughout the summer months, growing to 4-5 ft tall. It starts very early in the season, one of the first to sprout new growth if grown in areas where it freezes back in winter. This is a vigorous plant, and given the right conditions a single rhizome will multiply to a fair sized patch in a single summer.

Hedychium Disney is root hardy to zone 7, and can be conveniently grown in pots and brought indoors in colder climates. Grow Hedychium Disney in 4-5 hours direct sun to get the best flowering and vigor. Like most Hedychiums, it needs rich, organic soil, kept plenty moist during active growth.

Hedychium coronarium is a top selling ginger and the most fragrant of all. In the summer and fall it bears fragrant flowers that resemble butterflies, thus the common name, Butterfly Ginger. It is also been said to attract butterflies. It is popular in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands were it is used in leis or singly worn in the hair or behind the ear. It also makes a good cut flower great for scenting the home. It is a tough plant, a light freeze will kill it to the ground, but it will come back full force in the spring. Hedychium coronarium need light shade and a soil that is high in organic matter. The plants should stay wet at all times, the pots may even be immersed up to the crown in water. Fertilize weekly with a balanced fertilizer. The plants are very robust and quickly grow out of the containers. They need to be divided yearly. Remove old stems after flowers have faded to promote new growth. Hedychium coronarium is propagated by division in late winter- early spring. A frequent ginger in the house gardens of the Dai people along the Mekong river, it is used in local medicine to treat cold, headache, arthritis, and injuries. Sometimes this plant is called Alpinia alba which is incorrect name.

Origin: India, Himalayas
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterYellow/orange flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Hedychium gardnerianum very vigorous, producing thick stems which support the large yellow flowers with orange stamens. It prefers a warm climate although it will grow outside in temperate areas that have light, infrequent frosts. Hedychiums thrive on heavy (nutritious) soil. Plants outdoors benefit from a thick winter mulch once the top growth has been removed. It grows to 8 ft tall with long, bright green leaves clasping the tall stems. The very fragrant pale yellow and red flowers are held in dense spikes above the foliage. They appear towards the end of summer.
