White butterfly ginger lily is a tropical perennial and a cousin of culinary ginger (Zingiber officinale). The green stalks grow from thick rhizomes to a height of around 5' tall. Leaves, stems and flowers are all blessed with a rich ginger fragrance that is pronounced when rubbed or crushed. From midsummer through autumn the stalks are topped with 6-12" long clusters of wonderfully fragrant white flowers that look like butterflies. The flowers eventually give way to showy seed pods chock full of bright red seeds.
Butterfly ginger is best grown in organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Likes hot and humid summers and consistently moist soils. It is more tolerant and adaptable to wet soils and full sun than many other gingers, which generally prefer well drained soil and partial sun.
