Input from hedychium fans needed
I've posted this on a few other forums and am trying to get as much input as I can. Feel free to mention any other traits you feel are important or would like to see etc. Any input is greatly appreciated
I am trying to gather some feedback for a Hedychium researcher and friend in India. Answers to the questions below will help them decide on how to proceed with possible new introductions. They have access to many species and forms that are not yet in general cultivation. I'll compile the info from here and elsewhere and forward it to them. Feel free to mention any other qualities that you feel important, and/or describe the perfect butterfly Ginger.
Q1: favorite flower Color
Q2: flower shape /size
Q3: inflorescence type. A cone like H coronarium or spike like H coccinuem
Q4: foliage type: wide leaves, narrow, etc
Q5: preferred height
Q6: how important is fragrance
Q7: what features of current species/hybrids to you find unattractive or problematic etc
Any other input would be appreciated.
