Hedychium ‘Golden Glow’ is a medium sized ginger which produces large showy flower spikes of golden yellow fragrant flowers.
As with all hardy or temperate gingers they all make wonderful container plants. If you prefer, this can be a good alternative way to cultivate them as they can easily be moved in winter to a frost free location such as a shed or garage to prevent the roots from freezing. As with most fast growing exotic herbaceous plants, regular feeding is essential for maximum growth and flowering. We recommend planting in rich, fertile composts either in the ground or container. In addition to this, regular liquid feeds of a fertiliser such as seaweed extract will reward you with lush growth and hopefully abundant flowers from mid-summer onwards.
It should be noted that we like to sell all our hedychiums in containers, they are rooted plants with at least a seasons growth and will be established enough to produce flowers given good growing conditions the following year if not before. They are slightly more expensive than buying bare rhizomes but we feel this is a better option as most hedychium dislike root disturbance and take a while to recover. You will also be receiving a larger plant.
Depending on the time of year we may cut back foliage to facilitate shipping. This will only be done to late season growth and will not harm the plant in anyway
