i have about l6 hedychiums, most are new this year and I know it will be a couple years before they bloom but I do have 4 out there growing in the ground and only one of them blooms yearly for me. wanted to know why if they die down to the ground every year, why they won't bloom too well. I live in Arkansas and they die down to the ground every winter. but I have one that grows and blooms every season and it's living in the same conditions as the other 3 .
if they die to the ground will they not bloom the next year? I'm just wondering if it's worth it for me to grow hedychiums unless their potted. and even then putting them in the garage, most of the tops do die off them. Even when I had the greenhouse I cut them back because they fell over and didn't look nice but they still bloomed the next year for me when they were in pots.
what's the story on the hedychiums and getting them to bloom?
