Today’s Flower of Power
As you enter the Palm Garden, look for the fruiting Ginger Lily, Hedychium densiflorum growing on the south facing bank. This is high altitude Himalayan species. The dry fruits, or capsules, split open along 3 seams to expose bright orange fleshy seeds that attract animals which eat and spread the seeds. Fruiting in this country requires long mild, frost-free autumns.
