Daily Flower Candy: Hedychium densiflorum ‘Stephen’

Reading time 1 minute

Clearing our borders of tender perennials last weekend, I was surprised to see the earth scattered with what appeared to be large pomegranate seeds.  At first I thought they were escaping lily beetles, but looking up I could see they had fallen from the 8ft tall flower stems of Hedychium densiflorum ‘Stephen’.  It seemed such a pity to be cutting down the lofty spikes, but now is the time to get these beauties out of harm’s way and into our cellar, where they will overwinter before emerging from the compost again in May.
