The fragrance of Hedychium is indeed divine, heavenly! Lucky enough to know how lovely the scent is :)
Oh I know - I love the smell of those flowers! I had them in my garden and then they disappeared - I must have weeded them out in a weeding frenzy. I recently discovered that the lesser galangal a friend gave me last year has the same scented flowers though - food and flowers - that's what I like!
Oh Missy, even if I am about 2ft away from the screen i can favorable smell it. Even at a distance of several meters, it is still very strong! haha, that is because i know it so well. However, some plants i had were forgotten under some shades, together with some ginger species, and I am not anymore familiar which one is the Hedychium there. We call it "kamya" here!
Owwww! I'm too far away :( I have never seen or smelled or touched one before tell me is it sweet, whats it like? It is stunning though.
You're teasing me!Hedychiums...heaven on earth.Only a few Frangipani come close.Hedychium coronarium (white)....greatHedychium gardnerianum (yellow)....my very favorite of all!David/:0)
Ohhhh! I can't quite smell them! Never stopped to think about whether they smell actually. So what is it like? Is it gingery?
I love their scent, it is delicious, so fresh, so fine, how does one explain it?
I would love to know what you think and appreciate your comments.
