Hedychium

Hedychium J.Koenig is a rhizomatous, mainly tropical genus in the Zingiberaceae or Ginger family, originating from the Himalayas, India, the Asian Pacific region and Madagascar, which has naturalized in vast areas of South America, the Caribbean, Eastern Australia, Korea and Hawaii. The genus contains some 40 species of woodland edge plants that normally grow in moist terrain, some of them moderately hardy due to mountainous origin. Many have very attractive flowers, often beautifully perfumed.

Common names for the genus include Ginger Lily and Garland Lily, the latter from the use of flowers of the white ginger (Hedychium coronarium) and the yellow gingers (H. flavescens and H. flavum) in Hawaiian floral garlands.
