Hedychium Hybr. Gold Flame
The picture above is showing Gold Flame photographed in the province of Chiang Mai.
The plant is not growing very high - 2.5' to 4' ( 70 to 120 cm ) and flowers at 70 cm. This could indicate that it is not the Gold Flame
as circulating in the nursery trade, but a Dwarf form of H.coronarium. As a Hedychium cultivar registry does not exist,
identification remains a problem and it must be suspected that many cultivars have been named several times.
So our Gold Flame is what you see above, a smaller, fragrant Hedychium with white and yellow flowers.
