The Butterfly Ginger Hedichium has delicate white flowers whose perfume fills my garden.
This is a native ginger with huge round leaves and delicalte, butterfly like flowers. It is delicately scented. It is called 'Nela sampige' meaning Bloom of the Earth. The plant comes to life in summer and goes to sleep in winter. It is a cousin of the Resurrection Plant, and is prized for its medicinal uses.
