Much valued for their large, butterfly-shaped flowers and sweet, heady scent. These tough lilies may freeze to the ground in a cold snap
only to return with greater vigor the following season. Coming in a wide range of heights, they can be used throughout the border for a
spiky texture. Large cone-like flower heads in a wide range of colors bloom from early summer until frost.

flowers bloom in brilliant masses. Blooms from July to frost. Grows to 8ft. Part sun to part shade. Zones 8-10.
Dr. Moy - (Hedychium sp.): Gorgeous variegated foliage makes this ginger a winner. Add to that
the great magnolia scent of its deep yellow blooms and you can't lose! Blooms from midsummer to frost.
Grows to 6ft. Part to full sun. Zones 8-10. $12.99
These wonderful gingers are so name because of the way the leaves spiral around the stalk. The underside leaves on our varieties are also velvety soft. A delight and joy to behold and touch!
White Spiral Ginger This fabulous crepe spiral ginger has white blooms but it's best feature is the deep red bracts that
stay after the blooms are gone. It thrives in the hot sun of Florida so put it out where it can show off in your yard!

A very large and diverse group of gingers valued both for their tropical foliage and for their large, colorful flower heads. Although most species are hardy to Zone 8, the plants must be kept frost-free for 16 or more months in order to bloom. Several species are grown for their spicy roots and medicinal value.

varigata): Outstanding variegated foliage plant reaching to 4 foot.
