I love this plant. I've had it for 4 or 5 years now and it's spread into a nice stand. It blooms from late summer to fall and the scent is lovely. This is a very strongly scented ginger and I love receiving wafts of scent throughout the yard. I cut the blooms and bring them into work, and the response is always, "What is that plant? I need one!"
