Description

Broad bright green foliage with gorgeous highly scented cream flowers with a yellow centre.  Flowers late August early September.  A good Hedychium for reliable flowering.  The scent really is stunning and will float over the garden in the evening.  Believed to be a cross of Gardnerianum and Coronarium and was distributed from the gardens at Great Dixter but the original source is unknown.  Can be grown indoors in bright filtered light, care must be taken with watering do not allow to dry out.

Height and Spread: Height 1.5m Spread: 1m

Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial/dappled shade.

Soil Conditions: Moist well drained soil, we add grit when planting.

Hardy/winter protection:  Hardy can be left in the ground with a good mulch. Devon Cream has been living happily in our garden for the last 5 years under the tree ferns.
