Hedy Elizabeth

Ok I think I finally got Elizabeth mainly for the fragrance and no smell. What's up?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

While she is a pretty 'bottlebrush' form of the butterfly ginger 'Elizabeth' simply can not compete with the good ol' standard H. coronarium for sweet frangrance. If you do not have this one I'm sure someone a few houses down will. ;o) HA!!! Its the common white flowered ginger everyone has. The big negative with the H. coronarium is she spreads fast so can take over a small garden in no time falt and is more floppy then the smaller bottlebrush gals.
