This plant is known as HEDYCHIUM CORONARIUM or better known as Butterfly Ginger taking after the shape of the flower that resembles butterflies. Hedychium coronarium is a ginger family and the most fragrant of all. It is popular in Hawaii and the Pacific Islands and makes a good cut flower for scenting the home. I usually put some in a bowl of water and place it on my dining table. It is a tough plant, grows well in containers, but will quickly grow out of the container and will need to be divided every now and then. After the flowers have faded, cut the old stems as this will encourage new growth.
