Hedychium coccineum "Applecourt"

Hedychium coccineum "Applecourt"


This is, at least in Europe, a very rare variety nowadays of Hedychium coccineum. With its bright orange flowers lightly fragrant of vanilla are produced in July/August on tall stems. 


Said to be tender, it has proven hardy here in my nursery showgarden for 5 years, with a thick mulch of pine bark over winter in a well drained, raised bed, planted 20 to 30cm deep.
