Hi Fellow Aroider,

The Hedychium coronarium is hardy in my yard, US plant zone 7. They
bloom from late summer til fall. They are still blooming. We have not
had any frost so far. The weather here has continued to be very mild.
80s F daytime high and 60s F nighttime low. This plant has never bloomed
for me this long before. The fragrance is heavenly. March 1993 was the
first time that I planted this plant. I have it planted in the
background behind my mail box.
