Ginger Lily flower

A pretty average picture of the Scarlet Ginger Lily (Hedychium coccineum) mentioned in my posting just under two weeks ago. We water it with rainwater from a nearby tank, and every now and then with tap water as part of Sunday morning sprinkle on days like these.

Remember though that this species can be weedy if it escapes from your garden so perhaps look for a tough, but not so tough, ginger lily cultivar.
