Planting & Care
Grows in humus-rich, fertile, moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Choose a warm position sheltered from cold winds and give a deep winter mulch. An alternative is to grow it in a large container on a warm, sunny patio and to overwinter indoors or under glass.
Sunlight: Full Sun, Partial Shade
Soil: Moist but well-drained soil; Chalk, Loam, or Sand with pH: Acid, Alkaline, or Neutral.
Water: Ginger Lilies require regular watering.
- Hedychium plants can be sown outside at the beginning of spring before the last frost has happened.
- Simply cover the seed with a light dusting of topsoil.
- Ginger Lily and other Hedychium members like to grow in an area of the garden that is sunny and has very good drainage.
- They prefer to grow in a moist Humus rich soil.
- If you prefer to first grow Ginger lilies as seedlings indoors then they should be prepared about two months before due to be transplanted in the garden a few weeks after the last frost of spring.
- The Hedychium seeds should first be soaked for two hours in warm water prior to sowing.
- They should then be kept at about 21 to 24 degrees centigrade and will take about three or four weeks to germinate.
- When ready the young Hedychium plant should be put in the garden at about 60 to 80 cm apart.
- Ginger Lilies require regular watering.
- Once the flowering season is over cut back the flowering stems to the ground.
- If growing as a perennial then the rhizomes should be brought inside in cold areas.
- More Hedychium plants can be had by division of the rhizomes (make sure that each section contains an eye) at the end of winter.
