My Gingerlily which is huge (7ft) lives in the conservatory. I was hoping to kill it, but have decided to put it outside next Spring in the garden border.

Looks lovely DD. Siris sounds like your lily is asking to go outside.......

I think so too!! Do you know which variety it is Siris?

11 Sep, 2015

 

No, I don't know the variety Dd, it was given to me by my neighbour down the road, who never remembers the names of what she has bought.

It's beautiful! It's flowering late, though, right?

I know the Kahili ginger flowers in June/July here in San Diego. The white and yellow gingers flower in late summer through fall.

Delonix thanks, this seems to be the time of the year that they come in to flower over here...it has already gone over sadly!

Did it only produce one flower spike or several? Usually, (here anyway) they produce many flower spikes in summer.

13 Sep, 2015

 

I would be proud of one flower head DD. Looks amazing.

13 Sep, 2015

 

Thanks linda....only one Delonix.

Mine didn't even get going until the start of July so no flowers here this year. They are very sweetly scented aren't they.

Dottydaisy2:

That's a shame it only produced one flowers spike. I guess one is better than none, though. :>)

Meanie:

Is it too late to flower? Is it cold there, already?

I can't imagine cold this early in the year...as it's been sweltering hot here for weeks and will be for a while.
