I don't think Arkansas is a good place to grow the hedychiums. Seems they rarely bloom and always fall over from heat or lack of water, though I do give them water quite often. It's really aggrivating.
What I want to know is, Can I grow these hardy gingers in a large pot, and will they bloom better.
I do have some red pinecone ginger in a 5 gallon pot, which I have to divide every year. it's only bloomed once. So I was concerned about the other gingers blooming in pots. The ones I do have in pots do not fall over even from lack of water. So seems they stand up better in pots. Do I need to protect the hardy gingers from frost this winter if their in pots? should I bring them into the garage, I normally just put a light layer of mulch over them when I cut them back to the ground. I'm seriously considering just growing them in large pots.
