Hedychium 'Tahitian Flame' (Variegated Ginger Lily)

Variegated Ginger Lily


Prized for its variegated foliage and large flowers, Hedychium 'Tahitian Flame' (Ginger Lily) is an upright perennial boasting a profusion of intoxicatingly fragrant, apricot flowers held in dense clusters from midsummer through fall. The flowers are borne at the tips of upright stems and rise above the handsome foliage of lance-shaped, green and creamy-white leaves. Easy to grow and versatile, this hardy Ginger Lily creates a wonderful architectural accent for both containers and gardens.

  • Grows up to 5-6 ft. high (150-180 cm) and 2 ft. wide (60 cm). A vigorous Ginger Lily that spreads rapidly.
  • Performs best in part shade or shade, in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils. Shelter from cold winds. Apply a deep mulch to protect your plant in frost prone areas. Can be grown in a large container on a warm, sunny patio. Overwinter indoors or under glass.
  • A pretty addition to beds and borders, containers, wall-side borders, cottage gardens or Mediterranean gardens.
  • Virtually disease free. Keep an eye out for glasshouse red spider mite and aphids.
