Answer: Hedychium, commonly known as Ginger lily or Butterfly lily, are harlf-hardy plants with broad, lance shaped leaves and spikes of fragrant flowers. Plants grow 2-12 feet tall, prefer sun to part shade and rich, moist, but well draining soil. Plant rhizomes in early spring when soil is still cool (light frost won't hurt them), or in the autumn, if you're dividing plants. Amend the bed with plenty of aged manure or compost prior to planting.
